5 Engineering Challenges with Clothespins, Binder Clips, and Craft Sticks

5 Engineering Challenges with Clothespins, Binder Clips, and Craft Sticks. Awesome STEM activity for kids!

First week of school time capsule- stamp & date their itty hand prints, measure their height with yarn, and have them fill out a little first day info sheet with their self portrait on the back. Then save 'till the last day of school and have them open it and do the exact same activity! It’ll be so much fun to see how much they grow and change within a year! Love this idea! (download sheets!)

Dollar store photo albums... Turn them into flashcard fun! Easy to write and wipe, just insert what you are working on. You could even just insert white paper and have them work on writing sight words, so many ways to use them!

Love this idea for grouping students. You can move students around when you need too. If you're using ability grouping you can see where they started and how much they have grown.
