pinning now to read later This blog post is full of amazing ideas for how to prepare for Open House night and get a head start on learning about your students! I especially love the idea of an "About the Teacher" page and a page letting parents know all of the awesome things their children will be learning that year.
Birthday board I made for my kiddos. I downloaded the months off of Teachers Pay Teachers and used one of my fonts on Word to print out the word "birthday." The parents and kids love the new display for the classroom :)
Students have to write in a log every time they do not turn in their homework on time and explain themselves. This helps teachers keep track of how many times the same student does not do his/her homework, makes students think about why they did not do their homework, and establishes accountability.
Are your students forgetting your routines or asking a zillion questions? Mine were! Until I tried this... Question Board! Classroom management for too many questions (Free- consider it a gift from my sanity to yours ;) )
