    ""Brain Sprinkles" I took an empty spice container, created a cute label, then filled the container with beads and glitter. I shake the container over their heads, and...boom! They are revitalized. Sometimes I use them on myself. I love to give everyone brain sprinkles right before a test. Some even ask if I can shake a little extra sprinkles for them!" Im not a teacher but this is a cute idea

    **For those times when your brain needs an extra boost!** Although I try as hard as I can to make my lessons exciting, there are still those moments when the kids stare at me and it's like, "Bueller? Bueller? Anyone? Bueller?..." Well, for those moments, I use brain sprinkles. I'm not sure where I found this idea originally, but the kids love them! I took an empty spice container, created a cute label, then filled the container with beads and glitter. When the kids look at me like I have lost my mind, I shake the container over their heads, and...boom! They are revitalized. I'm serious. I think they magically work. Sometimes I use them on myself. I love to give everyone brain sprinkles right before a test. Some even ask if I can shake a little extra sprinkles for them! So cute! (Sorry for the blurry picture--it was the best I could do.) Cute idea!!!

Fluency 1 - Work on expression and fluency by having the students read a paragraph after choosing one of these cards that gives them a different voice or action to do while reading. It keeps their attention while they're learning different ways to read. Or you can use this to help kids remember the spelling for sight words

Spiderweb game: make a masking tape web and then see if kids can get paper "flies" stuck in it.

I'm done, now what? The links to this one are not working but I am sure all of the teachers out there can come up with your own topics and questions! What a great idea for those that complete their work and need to be challenged!

Learning Adventures with Mrs. Gerlach: Motivational Magic! - "Brain Spray" is water with a little glitter in it. This teacher sprays a little on her students to "activate their brains." Lots of neat motivational ideas here.

I borrowed this from Dr. Jean. It is an old coffee creamer bottle with the label removed. First I filled the bottle with about two tablespoons of rice. Then I put a piece of plastic wrap under the lid and glued the lid with my handy-dandy E-6000 glue. (If you don't have this glue - go get some!!! It will glue anything together.) The plastic wrap allows me to actually open the lid. Everyone will get a little sprinkle before our "Circle Time" begins! Very low tech, but I am hoping it will be effective!
