Explore Fade Away, Jumping Jacks, and more!

Each popscicle stick has an activity on it {like spin 3x, jump rope, macarena, seat swap, etc...}.  When I see that the kids are starting to fade away, I stop and say "man, our brains need to take a break...lets do a brain break." Then I randomly select a popsicle stick and we do the activity together.  The kids absolutely go NUTS for these fun little activities.  None last longer than a minute and it's a great way to get them focused!

Freebie. Behavior Bracelets for your kiddos to tell mom and dad how they did in school.

Free behavior bracelets let parents know their child did great! I love this idea - maybe cut a few blank bracelets so that positive behavior comments can be customized to reflect child-specific behaviors

countdown to the last day of school.  each balloon has an activity to do when it is popped

"I did this last year and the kids loved it! Countdown to last day of school. Pop one balloon each day. Inside is a special surprise for the day. No homework, read outside, work with no shoes on, chew gum in the morning, etc." I love this idea!

quiet critters-when you decide it is important for students to be quiet pass out quiet critters- take them away from students who talk. At the end of the activity anyone who still has a quiet critter gets a prize, point, whatever you use. Brilliant!
