The Question Board Classroom Management FREEBIE!

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 ;) )

SUB PLANS: In your sub binder put the book “Miss Nelson is Missing” and have the substitute read the book to your class. Have the children then write a story about where they think you are while you are out from school. I can only imagine how funny and creative these stories will be!

This App "Noise Control" magically ask your students & kids to keep quiet on your behalf..... It's so magical that teachers found that students are more willing to corporate in classroom activities....
