Record your voice to leave center instructions, math fact practice, etc. Great to leave your voice behind when you have a sub!

Awesome idea! One way to use them: record instructions for a center, so if kids forget what to do they just hit the button.

This is pretty cool, and a great visual for kids to have awareness of how much time is left and it's only 11.00 at

Such a cool idea! This will help each student feel important, needed, and supported in the classroom. I would maybe allow other students to write complements for their peers as well (but make sure that everyone is included, not just a few people). This can also help to create great bonds between students and teachers. Everyone wants to feel important!

This is an AMAZING lesson planning app. You can email the plans, print them out, etc., for record keeping purposes. Color coded for each student's records. YES finally found a reason why I NEED an iPAD! Yay!!! #app

Pencil fidgets - They allow the student to have something to move around in their hands. Students that require such fidgets have a need for sensory stimulation, and fidgets provide that within the classroom setting. I know about 50 kids... and myself who would benefit from these.

Math tub idea: Get two ice trays from the dollar spot at Target, write numbers on white labels for each hole, and kids toss a cube in each tray and add numbers together on recording sheet or whiteboard. They think it's so fun!!
