At the beginning of the year, make several "New Student" bags with welcome letters, name tags, birthday tags, etc. Anything that a new student will need. This will save a lot of time when you find out on a Friday that you are getting a new student Monday!
Classroom Management/ Reward Idea - pick a stick and class doesn't know who that person is until the end of the day. If that person behaved in line, listened and followed directions in class with few warnings, they get a reward. If the mystery person doesn't behave their name goes back into the container.
Pinner said: I have half of these cards up in my class and my kids love choosing their goal each day and I have noticed a huge difference in the way they are during the day. They really like reaching their goals, and it's helping teach them to manage themselves in a different way. LOVE THESE SO MUCH!!
