GENIUS HOUR: For one hour a week let your students work on a "passion project"-- something they really love or care about. What an awesome idea.
Rundes Room: Literacy... there are SO many classroom resources on this blog!
Runde's Room: Passion Projects in the Classroom: In a nutshell, Genius Hour is something that happens in your classroom for one hour a week. During this time, students research and complete an inquiry project based on their passions - really digging deep into what motivates them.
Passion Projects in the Classroom- LOVE this idea!! Perhaps every Friday enrichment period in 5th grade is dedicated to GENIUS hour? These projects would NOT be graded- just a way to allow the students to learn more about what they are passionate about

Students fill out and drop in a locked mailbox outside the counselor office. Forms are introduced to grades 2-5 and importance of confidentiality and honesty targeted. Oh this is a wonderful idea!
Great school counselor idea.
"Create a simple form for students to access school counseling services based on their own perceived need for assistance... Already, I receiving daily requests and some students who seemingly might not have sought help (when needed) have stepped forward with difficulties they're facing."

This pin is a collage of the areas in which educators would like to see more parent involvement. The collaboration of using both teachers and parents can create an essential link between home life and school life, and with the pace of education, there are always new ways in which parents can help out. Epstein and Becker (1982) found that parents can sometimes be unreliable and lacking in training on how to control their children and teach accordingly.

Parent volunteer ideas
Ways to help teachers when you can't work in the classroom: I especially like the little ideas of making up name tags with the extra kids' pictures given to the school from picture day for field trips or substitutes and organizing the box tops for education for the class (could put together little containers for each child using recycled soup cans that have been spruced up with scrap paper)
how to volunteer … helping your kid’s teacher - "1) Take home work that needs to be prepared. Cut, sort, label, glue, staple, etc. 2) Help coordinate parent volunteers for parties, field trips and donations. 3) Put together and pass out parent information... " (Includes printable document that you can tailor to your needs and pass out to the class)
