AWESOME end of the year gift for each student: Comes with a sheet to give each student where they write one word to describe each of their classmates. Combine classmates' words into a word cloud surrounding that student's name. Present as a framed gift on last day :)
Universal Homework Model- interesting video from Whole Brain Teaching-research shows that homework has little to no value in elementary school, but we shouldn%u2019t totally give it up since it does prove beneficial in middle and high school.
homework bingo - If they turn in their homework for that morning they get to write their name on any square. On friday's I will pull out two bingo chips...and whatever names are on that square they will be able to pick out of the treasure box. LOVE THIS IDEA!!!
