Students must highlight their name before putting it in the tray. Great way to make sure all papers have names! Brilliant!

Put a "Tidy Tub" on each table while students are doing cutting projects. It helps keep the students in their seats working instead of getting up to go to the trash. Good for cutting up interactive notebook pieces.

Instead of sitting with your hand up waiting for help.... clip up your name and keep working!

The students clip their name to the sleeve, and Teacher works from top to bottom. As the teacher finishes with the top student, they head over to move their clip back to the bottom, and send the next student in line over to the teacher.

When kids are pulled for speech, OT, reading groups, etc., they put the cup on their desk to say they are out of the room. It makes it easy to glance around the room and see who has been pulled.

"Brain Break" sticks! Each popsicle stick has an activity on it {like spin 3x, jump rope, macarena, seat swap, etc...}.  When I see that the kids are starting to fade away, I stop and say "man, our brains need to take a break...lets do a brain break."

When students ask a question no one in the class knows (including myself), they can put it up on the Google Board. Students can bring back a written answer to one of the questions of their choice each week for extra credit, or whatever incentive you choose. They get really excited when a question comes up that they can put on the board and find out the answer to later...
