This "I'm done..." board is a great way to remind students of their choices once they have completed the current activity. By having this posted as a bulletin board or poster within the room, students would have a visual reminder of the acceptable options they have while awaiting transition to the next activity. This procedure would help maintain order as well as keep faster students busy.
Attention Grabbers! I was so excited to find these! Getting the attention of students is something that needs to be done everyday and also needs to be established at the beginning of the year. These attention getters that are fun for students and the teacher to use! Let's get rid of turning the lights on and off, yelling " Class" and clapping patterns. - Alex Otto
New Student packet. Pinner wrote, "I can grab it and say 'I thought you maybe joining us today.' instead of 'oh, we weren't expecting a new student.' It will get us off on the right foot. So much better than scrounging for stuff every time a new student arrives!
Michelle Garrard Ran copies of the hand on many colors of paper and passed out pieces of sandpaper, waxed paper, cotton, beans, and macaroni. We talked about the texture and what the best describing word would be to tell about the texture of each of those pieces of matter. We glued a piece on each fingertip and wrote the texture word on the finger.
