      Use bracelets for assigning students into teams for games or if you want random team assignment, put the bracelets in a paper bag and have students close their eyes and pick one. Also an idea for our small groups?

      Thank you to whoever thought of and posted this originally. I like this idea, even for small groups that I assign myself. Use the bracelets for assigning students into teams for class projects.

    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.

    INSTANT CLASSROOM GROUP GENERATOR: Makes student groups (for up to 100 students) randomly. Yes!

    No Homework Binder--Each student has a blank page in the binder. The student must write the date, assignment, and reason for not having it on their page for each forgotten assignment. Keeps track of # missing and reasons. Great management tool!

    Love this!!! Beginning of the year- COOPERATION! Teams race to build the highest tower using spaghetti and marshmallows. When the time is up (10 mins) discuss what made teams successful.

    Markers inside "eraser" - when passing these out, the students don't know what color they'll get = no arguing!

    Master Copies Binder: So much easier than shoving everything in a filing cabinet

    Will be doing this for my students when they can't leave their phone/ipods alone!

    Secret Student - pick a student each day to keep a close eye on. During the day say you are checking on your secret student and the class will correct their behavior in case they are the secret student

    The TooLoud! app is ideal for the teacher who needs to limit noise in the classroom environment. It records decibels, displaying the volume levels in numbers. Use it to let the class know when they cross the auditory line. Hook your iPad up to the projector and manage the working noise level in class by letting the students see the feedback for themselves.

    Cartolines de couleur plastifiées, petites pinces à linge, et hop, bel affichage pour les productions des élèves !

    Reminder posters on what to do when students are done with task, so they stay busy and do not disrupt class if they finish early. Great for younger grades that need reminders.

    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)

    Show students a picture & have them make 5 observations, 5 inferences, and then 5 predictions. Clarifies those processes &--depending on the picture!--can be a great way to get them thinking and engaged on a topic.

    This will help remind me that I want to do a quick interview conference w/ each child. Change the questions for individual interests and learning styles instead of normal get to know you ?s

    "Challenge capsules" for students who finish early-- keep those high achievers moving (Capsules are called "acorn capsules" and can be purchased on Amazon)
