    Sub Binder I HATE trying to write down where everything is.... THIS is MUCH easier! (THIS. IS. SO. SMART!)

    What a simple and sweet surprise for students.

    What Makes a Parent Love a Teacher - terrific post by Jennifer of Cult of Pedagogy about the importance of getting to know your students and some tips doing that.

    Keeping track of meetings/phone conversations throughout the year.

    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.

    Students have to write in a log every time they do not turn in their homework on time and explain themselves. This helps teachers keep track of how many times the same student does not do his/her homework, makes students think about why they did not do their homework, and establishes accountability.

    I LOVE this idea. "The Red Plate Project". Send home the plate and a note the first week of school. It tells parents about a tradition of celebrating special accomplishments by eating dinner with a red plate. When students have a great day, the teacher sends home a note saying they had a "Red Plate Day" and please celebrate by letting them eat off the red plate for dinner! I think I'll give these out at Open House!

    End of year gift for students

    FREE Dolch Words & Phrases Book This is a black & white booklet I make for all of my students each year. It contains all 11 lists of the Dolch Sight Words plus the Dolch Phrases for the students to practice at home.

    Give each student a sheet of paper with every classmate's name on it. They had to write a nice sentence about everyone in the class. Then each student has 20+ nice things written about him or her. This activity was great because some of the students in my class don't hear about how great they are at home. Keep them in a frame to preserve them. The kids will love hearing about how great they are from classmates.

    I don't always text my students, but when I do I use remind101 Safe, Easy, and FREE! Check it out at Mrs. Stanford's Class Blog!

    **The Bandaid Lesson - great!** Lesson to explain differentiation to more "that isn't fair" after this demonstration! Good first day of school lesson, love!

    High five notes

    Students find their new group by finding the puzzle pieces that fit together. (You could use this idea on the first day of school as well as throughout the year... anytime you're changing teams.)

    beginning of the year forms. cute font. good things to think about.

    keep dice from flying across the room

    Have a student sit on chair in front of white board and have others write a positive phrase about them, then take a picture. Don't let them see it...till they get the photo! Such a great end of the year activity or for those days when students are using unkind words about one another. If I become a Teacher, this is sooo happening!

    Great to have at school and at home for homework time. Grab some file folders and make your students a mini office to place on their desks during independent work time. Below are some files and pictures from teachers in the US that use mini offices in their rooms. They have kindly shared their resources so that you could create your own
