Flip Signs for students to let you know what stage they're working in without interrupting the class. Sign says: I'm working hard, I need help, and I'm finished. Work Hard, I M Work, I Needs Helpful, Working Hard, Flip Charts, I M Finish, Classroom Management, Flip Signs, Classroom Ideas

Motivation for students to work hard - might use this someday if I ever start a classroom blog :)... Really cool for an art teacher, but also works for a classroom teacher. Can do for writing, and also use art that kids did in art class
Students sign out when they leave the classroom; can also have magnetic pictures/words for nurse, bathroom, etc. so students can put it beside their name so you know exactly where they are.
