Helping Hands Classroom Display

Quiet Critters - They live in a soundproof jar only come out when it's quiet. They don't like a noisy classroom! During quiet work time you can pop one on each student's desk. If they are noisy you can move the critter to the side of their desk as a warning. If they continue to be noisy, the critter is returned to the jar. At the end of the lesson, whoever still has a critter on their desk can change it over for a sticker, points or other incentive.

Counting on own fingers might be difficult. But let's try it on this hand and kids will make miracles!

Helping Hands! I love ours, though, because we paint their hands the 1st week of school and stamp them on white paper. I always making at least two so that I can laminate one for the Helping Hand at circle time and the other gets to go home! Helping Hands is a fantastic tool to use at home once they are used to the routine at school :)

How this teacher manages: instead of having classroom jobs, she had a boy and girl "helping hand" of the day. The two helpers were responsible for all of the classroom jobs (line leader, door holder, running errands, etc.) Just write each students' name on a cutout of a hand and hang the hands on the wall and flip the hands each day. It is such a super easy system, and it works out so that students get to be a helper about once every other week.

Classroom Helpers instead of students asking and fighting over helping they will already know who is responsible for helping by looking at the chart. 4058

Love this idea for Birthdays in the classroom display!

To teach routines to your children....I did something similar to the folder with a magnetic board for each of my kids that had each task to be completed (even took pictures of my kiddos doing the tasks), I had a morning & night routine, they would move the task themselves when competed.... I started with 3-5 tasks... helps teach independence

Gift to each student the first day!

Homeworkopoly. Like this idea. Quiz or reward if students have handed in all their homework during the week

Good Behavior Chart ---- This keeps track of the students who are doing well along with the students who need some extra help! Instead of only highlighting the bad, this visibly shows who's doing well.
