Writing letters in salt (this site has Montessori & Montessori-inspired activities).

writing in sand.A Montessori inspired idea that's actually great for kids learning the alphabet and working on motor skills.
practicing letter writing in salt/sand with flashcards. I always envisaged gluing letter shapes onto card, sprinkling sand, shaking off then drying. Kids can 'feel' the shape of the letters. Very tactile. I guess you could cut letter shapes out of sand paper for a similar affect. # Pin++ for Pinterest #
Using salt to help kids learn how to write letters
cool way to learn letters for kids
Salt writing with a holder for cards... Good pre writing idea to start kids learning how to move their hands with a pencil

Cell phone partners -- each student selects 10 names to put on a speed dial number. When you need a partner, teacher calls out a number and they check the speed dial to see who their partner is this time. Cute idea instead of clock buddies. Would need to switch out every semester to make sure students work with everyone!

Classroom organization ideas Use clipboards on the bulletin board to hang up student work. Simply change the title with each assignment and hang the work on the boards rather than switching the bulletin board each period. Or use the same title (such as writing in this one) to display writing work from the whole year.
So many classroom ideas! this is like a new teachers bible

Weather: Fill the cup with water. Put shaving cream on top for a cloud. Explain that when clouds get really heavy with water, it rains! Then put blue food coloring on top of the cloud, and watch it rain. Kids love experiments!

I thought this was a really cool experiment that I must do with my students to introduce a weather topic or even the water cycle!
If you know me well, you know I love science experiments!  I found this neat little experiment on Pinterest to share with you tonight.  Fill a cup with water and put shaving cream on top to act as a cloud.  Explain to students that when clouds get really heavy with water, it starts to rain.  Add some blue food coloring drops to the top of the shaving cream and watch it start to rain!  What a great addition to your weather unit.  I already did my weather unit but ...
BRILIANT!! Why didn't I think of this before?! **Vowel Game** •Each child has a laminated strip of vowels and a clothespin. •I say a CVC word like "cat." •The children listen and then put their clothespin on the vowel they hear in the CVC word. What is so great about this game is that you can have the children hold up their strips and you can quickly check and see who is "getting it." And best of all, it is fun!-cute!

Keeping track of students! Great tool for teaching sorting, understanding of one's place in space and time, number recognition, one-to-one association when you teach each child to recognize his/her number, good grounding activity in the morning, why we go to the office, when we should go to the nurse, the best time to go to the bathroom is at recess...
Management tray to keep track of where students are at.

(Do bathroom instead of other). Mrs. Petite's Teaching Passion Blog: My First Monday Made It!!!! Great idea to hang by the door or since my door is magnetic, I could put it on the door using those new magnetic borders I saw today.
Where Are You?… Student Tracking & Classroom Management Idea - actually considering I see 22 sections of classes and their teachers assign numbers - this would work... especially with the little ones who come after lunch and always have to go to the bathroom!! And the rule is one at a time...
Mrs. Petites Teaching Passion: My First Monday Made It!!!!
Student Tracking Classroom Management Idea. I really like this idea, however, I don't like the idea of students having numbers. Instead, I would have their names or pictures on the magnets. This is a quick way to account for students and makes them accountable for moving their magnet if they need to leave the room. Best for older grades (4th/5th)
Wow! Must remember to check out before next year!! Great Classroom Ideas!

Here's a simple way to practice plurals with your kids that costs only cents. What you will need: 1. Sentence strips 2. Markers 3. List of nouns that follow the rules. What you do: 1. Write the noun on the sentence strip. 2. Fold the right hand corner to cover up whatever gets taken away on the reform of the word. 3. Write the new ending that makes the word plural
Practicing Plurals-- love this idea for Spanish words
