Pinner said: I put a box like this on my desk last year and it was ALWAYS full of notes, stories and drawings from my kids. If they began to tell a story during a lesson I'd say "oh! box!" This way I heard the story AND kept the lesson going
Have kids draw themselves on little circles on the first day. Copy them and cut them to paste around a new page. Use it for a newsletter template. What a fantastic Idea! That would look so great for class announcements etc.
