      #Partner #wheel: Put the kids you don't want #together in the smaller circle and #match them up to the kids in the larger circle--this is sooo much #easier than choosing off the top of your head. It's tough when the last two kids don't work well together!-cm #classroom #management

      Great way to group students! You put the kids who you do not want to be together on the smaller circle and the other students on the larger circle (or vice versa). Just spin the wheel, and students can have a new partner who they work well with every time!

      Partner wheel: Put the kids you don't want together in the smaller circle and match them up to the kids in the larger circle! What a great idea! #classroommanagement

      Great way to group students. Put the kids you don't want to be together in the smaller circle, and then just spin the wheel.

      Way to group students. Put the kids who cannot work well together in the smaller circle, and the rest on the larger circle. Then just spin the circle for groups.

      To group your students: put the kids you don't want together in the smaller circle and other students on the outside circle. Spin the wheel and group students!

      Pairing students- put the kids that you do not want together on the inner circle.

    I love the desk arrangement in this classroom. Open group concept. Student desks are in groups, but all face the smart/white/chalk board.

    Pull a name from the Mystery Hero jar. Don't say their name, but let kids know you are watching your Mystery Hero. If the Mystery Hero does a good job reward them, and if they aren't on their best behavior just say to the class that the Mystery Hero needs to try harder. Don't call the student out or let students know who it was.

    Reach for the stars- kids can write their goals on their hand at the start of the year. LOVE this!

    cool way to group students

    Avoid the shoulder shrug or "I don't know" response.

    Students Birthdays. That's awesome!

    Group work - each student writes own ideas on a post-it, then group discusses and gives a collective answer.

    Where Am I? board

    Love this! It's always the same kids...this makes them more accountable and they can SEE how often they don't do it!!!

    Great Idea for monitoring students without all of the noise and confusion. Students can let the teacher know how they are doing, if they are finished, and how well they think they mastered the task. Make it smaller though.

    I love the idea of using clipboards to display student work. The students could be responsible for which work they wanted to display every week!

    Keeping track of students that are out of the classroom...

    cell phone partners-each child selects 10 names to put on a speed dial number. When you need a partner, teacher calls out a number and they check the speed dial to see who their partner is this time.

    Class photographer - each day one student is assigned the task of being class photographer. They are responsible for photographing an important moment, then writing about it for the class blog. Cool idea!
