WHERE IS JOHNNY? When kids are pulled for speech, OT, reading groups, etc., they put the cup on their desk to say they are out of the room. It makes it easy to glance around the room and see who has been pulled.

Use this instead of bathroom passes out of sentence strips, always got lost on the floor. Much better ideas. Use one for bathroom and one for pullouts

"I'm out of the room" cup - a student puts on their desk if they are pulled out of the room OR a job could be to put it on the absent students' desk

Super cute idea! "I'm Out of The Room" cups for when kiddos get pulled for music lessons/speech, etc. It would make it easy to see who is out at the moment, especially for a substitute!!

One of the teachers I work with suggested this idea at our first faculty meeting this year and I thought it was so smart! When kids are pulled for speech, OT, reading groups, etc., they put the cup on their desk to say they are out of the room. It makes it easy to glance around the room and see who has been pulled. This is super helpful. It could also be used for absent students.

Easy way to keep track of your busy middle schoolers as they leave the room for meetings! I'm Out of the Room Cup to put on student desks

out of the room cup. Place on desk when student gets pulled for speech, rsp, reading groups...

With having so many workbooks inside desks, I just swipe a fat Mr. Sketch marker along the bottom pages of the book. That way, when the books are piled inside their desks, they can see the colors! When I ask my students to take out a book, I'll say something like, "Please take out your Grammar Green book!" It really does help, and it makes transitions quicker and easier! And after a few weeks, my kiddos will be telling me which book is which!

CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT IDEA~ Swipe a fat marker along the bottom pages of students' workbooks using different colors for each one. When you say, "Please take out your green Spelling workbook," the kids will be able to peek in their cluttered desks and pull out the right one, the first time!

Color code workbooks at the beginning of the year with a fat marker. That way when the books are piled inside student desks, they can see the colors. When you need a certain book, tell them: "Please take out your green grammar book." It makes transitions faster and easier.

An easy fix to finding books in a desk: swipe a fat Mr. Sketch marker along the bottom pages of the textbook, workbook, or notebook/journal. Then direct students to take out their green math book or blue history notebook. Transitions will be much quicker.

Whew!  I survived the first two days of school! :) I have the cutest bunch of littles!  Seriously, they are ADORABLE! We spent most of Thursday and Friday going over routines and procedures:  hand signals, voice levels, how to line up, how to walk in the hall, how to... you get the idea!  I also introduced my firsties to all the workbooks they will be using through the year:  {More not pictured!} Between our reading, math, and science series, the kiddos have about seven different workbooks.   And most of them are red!  It's hard to tell some of them apart, so to help my sweeties take out the correct book in the beginning of the year, I color code them: I just swipe a fat Mr. Sketch marker along the bottom pages of the book.  That way, when the books are piled inside their desks, they can see the colors!  When I ask my students to take out a book, I'll say something like, "Please take out your Grammar Green book!"  It really does help, and it makes transitions quicker and easier!  And after a few weeks, my kiddos will be telling me which book is which! :) I forgot to take pics of the activities we did this week :(  The first two days were like a whirlwind!  I promise I will definitely be on top of picture taking from now on ;) Before I go, I have a little freebie for you!  After my last post on paint cans and my various incentive ideas, I got a lot of requests for the labels I used... so I put them together and uploaded them to Google Docs for you! :)  I print the labels on sticker paper from Staples {or you can use Avery full page labels}. Here's an example of how I use them: There are two labels included in the download that I don't think I mentioned in my last post.  I use the "Happy Birthday" label on a paint can full of krazy straw birthday balloons, and the "Warm Fuzzies" label on another paint can {I really love those paint cans} that we use as our class bucket {you can read more about that HERE}. Okay, I'm off!  I'll be completing work for my grad classes and putting together stuff for school this week... and hopefully getting started on a little Christopher Columbus unit that's been brewing ;)   Have a great Sunday everyone!

First Day of School Frame- Neat idea for the start of each school year

I made a First Day of School picture frame for the kiddos to hold as I take a picture. I attached the big star labeled "1st" with velcro on the back.  By using velcro, I can change out the "1st" star with "100th" or "Last", so I can use it for those important dates.  I am still in the process of making those. Three more days before I meet my first graders! :) First Day of School Picture Frame I used Velcro to attach the star labeled "1st", so I can change it out with "100th" or "Last"
