    Dealing with school supplies on the first day of school

    How this teacher manages: instead of having classroom jobs, she had a boy and girl "helping hand" of the day. The two helpers were responsible for all of the classroom jobs (line leader, door holder, running errands, etc.) Just write each students' name on a cutout of a hand and hang the hands on the wall and flip the hands each day. It is such a super easy system, and it works out so that students get to be a helper about once every other week.

    This teacher TYPES all her lessons, every day, every week. She puts them in a three-ring binder AND in page covers. On top of all that, she keeps it on a stand so that it leaves space on her desk.

    organizing- i did this while student teaching during my first placement it was AMAZING, having everything done before the week began.
