Teacher Big Book - introduces the teacher to the class for the beginning of the school year. Good to have out during parent-teacher conferences, too.

student biographies...maybe have them do a timeline at home and then use that as the pre-writing for this...hmmmmm
the teacher wife - love her last day of school circus theme party and awards along with the students' autobiographies.
biographies, books, and clowns... oh my!..could start by having students make a timeline of their life up to the present.
2nd grade - autobiographies. Saaks kasutada erinevates ainetes. joonista ennast, kirjuta endast jne

Management Idea, Fun Friday, Friday Idea, Behavior System, Golden Ticket, Gold Tag
A behavior chart different from the clip chart. I like her ideas, but truth is, I'm a die hard clip chart-er. Re-pinned for the "fun Friday" reward idea
This Fun Friday clip chart is a behavior chart as well as a way to determine who goes to what centers on Fridays. I would implement this as shown, using gold tickets that I give out to the students who behave well throughout the week. The students with the most gold tickets choose which center they want to go to first.
A Teeny Tiny Teacher: I Don't Use a Clip Chart. Please Don't Throw Rotten Tomatoes.- interesting behavior plan...gold tickets and a fun friday reward...
A clip chart alternative....golden tickets. Students earn, or lose tickets based on behavior. On Friday use them to get fun Friday time.
Interesting Gold Tag behavior plan. Hmmmmm clip chart or gold tag, decisions decisions
Gold tag, fun friday behavior system! love the positive reinforcement!
Alternative to clip chart PLUS Fun Friday idea

beginning of the year - daily behavior goals...like the idea and think it would work for weekly goals that come out of our Monday class meeting!
Have a daily class goal that everyone must work on. I thought about doing this for each individual student.. Have it on their desk.. a dry erase mat.. Could be daily or weekly goal.
Our Daily Class Goals. I like the idea of having a behavior goal for the class!
Our Daily Class Goals - a great idea to make a daily goal as a whole class

Bulletin Board, Auction Idea, Bulletinboard, 2Nd Grade
With heart and helping hands children can accomplish anything! #bulletinboard #hands #art #craft #children #school #teaching
2nd grade auction project- I'd like to do this with a Bible Verse instead and use it for a bulletin board.
2nd grade auction project *The quote in the middle says, "with heart and helping hands a child can accomplish anything." BUT - a Maria Montessori quote would be even better if you can think of one! :)
Fun idea for first day of class? Make hands, put their names or picture in their hand (what they want to learn that year?, favorite science subject? or something to reflect back upon) and in last week have them update their goals, and take their picture next to the poster and give them a copy of the picture at the end of class.

A picture book. I haven't read this book but I this book will be perfect before the first class project. This would be perfect in both kindergarten or first grade classes. Though I haven't read the book, the cover really called my attention.
Although Matty’s art teacher has warned him that too much glue never dries, Matty loves glue. After all, he and his dad make oodles of glue projects at home. One day during art class, Matty finds the fullest bottles of glue, and the fun begins.
Matty LOVES glue. At home with Dad, he makes glue glasses, glue mustaches, and glue bouncy balls. But at school, Matty's art teacher worries and warns about using too much glue. What will happen when Matty decides to make himself the center of his most fantastic glue project ever?
Art teacher appreciation. Read during Kindergarten's first art class. "Just a dot...."
Too Much Glue. Hee hee story of my life in the art room.

Group work anchor chart. I could see myself creating this anchor chart along with a classroom discussion. The students could contribute their ideas about what they think group work expectations should be (then maybe it wouldn't be GROUPS exactly) or I could come up with the 6 main points and add their specifics for each below. In this discussion, students' ideas and input are valued.
I need to make a group anchor chart like this to use a guide to group work expectations.
Group work...will have to revise for high school but I like the idea!

First Grade- "Slap The Word". Two children at a time... teacher says a word and then the children have to slap the correct word quickly. Could use with letters, numbers, etc
Fly swatter sight word game (poster) I could even to shapes or colors for toddlers. They would have so much fun swatting them. :)
Fly swatter sight word game (poster) I usually play the fly swatter game by projecting the words on to the board but since my room has changed a great deal, I may have to make a poster this year. Maybe velcro the circles so I can move them around.
Fly swatter sight word game (poster)- I did this using the projector which made it easier to add/delete sight words!
Fly swatter sight word game (poster)....BUT make it with positive/negative integers! or other concepts
Fly swatter sight word game (poster) We do this on the floor. I like the poster version! :-)
This is a game that I have been playing with my students to practice reading spelling words and sight words. I call it "Slap the Word". It is a quick an easy game board to create. All you need is a poster board and some circle dye cuts. You glue the blank dots on and laminate the board for reuse. You could also use this board for math games! For this game, I write with a vis-a-vis marker our spelling words and sight words. I stand back and say a word from the board. The two students have flyswat

For reminders at the end of the day. I was thinking you could even split it into two sections for other reminders just for the teacher. So helpful.... the day is always full of surprises!!
Reminder board by the door. I love this as a tool to not only remind the students of important information but it provides a visual for the teacher to remember to discuss certain information in class. As the pinner of this even suggested you can take a picture and put it on your class website so parents can have access to the information.
Idea: mini-bulletin board area for notices...a student job could be to read the board to the class!
Reminders because I ALWAYS forget to remind at the end of class! Making a space on my whiteboard!
Good idea. This post has lots of cute classroom organization ideas.

LOVE THIS IDEA: I picked a stick and they never knew who that person was until the end of the day. If that person behaved in line, listened and followed directions in class with few warnings, they got a surprise out of the treasure box and their name went up on the wall of fame..if the mystery person did not behave their name went back into the box or whatever I had and it was never revealed. FREAKING GENIUS!
Awesome idea to get students to listen! Will definitely try next year.

Mystery Person Classroom Management Idea: Choose a stick and no one knows but the teacher who that person is until the end of the day. If the mystery person behaves in line, listens and follows directions in class with few warnings, they get a surprise out of the treasure box and their name goes up on a wall of fame..if the mystery person does not behave their name goes back into the box and it's never revealed.
