Cool Down Cubes - great for students who have difficulty with anger. Using a permanent marker, write a safe "cool down" strategy on each ice cube. For example: count to ten, walk away, talk to a friend, take three deep breaths, etc. I also left a few of the cubes blank so that the students could come up with their own strategies.

Put a "Tidy Tub" on each table while students are doing cutting projects. It helps keep the students in their seats working instead of getting up to go to the trash.

Letting feet stay busy..... students can push on the band while sitting in their chair. This will help the child who needs constant movement. (We used these with a couple of our boys last year, really helped)

Blurt Chart: students have three happy faces next to their name and each time they blurt out they take off one of the happy faces. used with a different reward system this could be a good class management strategy. By the way, this is working great with my second graders!

Dealing with school supplies on the first day of school...this lady leaves a paper grocery bag with each child's name at their desk so when they come in the first day they can put all supplies in the bag and the teacher can set them all aside until after school to sort through them. This will really free up my morning and it will be less chaotic!

Give each student a sheet of paper with every classmate's name on it. They had to write a nice sentence about everyone in the class. Then each student has 20+ nice things written about him or her. This activity was great because some of the students in my class don't hear about how great they are at home. Keep them in a frame to preserve them. The kids will love hearing about how great they are from classmates.
