Rubber band on back of journal - punch a hole and them loop a large rubber band through the hole. As the notebook fills up with foldables or inserts, students can pull band around journal to keep it closed! LOVE the simplicity of this idea!
Use the bracelets for assigning students into teams for class projects. Or if you want random team assignment, put the bracelets in a paper bag and have students close their eyes and pick one. hmmm clever
