Sparking Student Motivation: Whole Brain Teaching - Attention grabbers
Beyond the "Class/Yes"-- We could use some new life in our Power Teaching strategies!! ;) Switch up your attention grabber; students start to become tuned out after a couple of months.
My 8th graders loved this kind of stuff when I was student teaching. Love the "stop, collaborate and listen" one!

Here is a great example of using digital scrapbooking in school work. Digital scrapbooking can be very motivating. Reluctant writers do better journaling a scrapbook page over writing a book report and some children thrive on working in digital or art environment.

Textual Evidence Anchor Chart - use with close reading
Textual Evidence Anchor Chart - I need this especially as Common Core starts up this year.
Teaching Students to use Anchor Standard #1: Textual Evidence in the Common Core Classroom | Common Core Made Easy | Scoop.it This list of questions is a simple reminder for teacher/librarians to encourage the use of text evidence with any research or writing prompt. We have mentioned the value of questioning this week, and this reinforces the idea that text needs to be analyzed....
Textual Evidence Anchor Chart - would want to take out the 'it' and 'I', but this is a good idea!
Common Core is all about evidence!! Standard One for all grades is all about showing the evidence!! This is a great Anchor Chart for Textual Evidence Sentence Starters by fay.m.sandoval

A visual for Think Alouds...could also be used as a signal that the teacher is unavailable (like during guided reading or writing conferences.)

Use a tap-it light to show think alouds during your read alouds. Tap the light "on" when you stop reading and discuss what the text makes you think. Helps students to "see" the difference between your reading and your thinking. Could also use to let students know when you are not available, during reading/writing conferences, etc. This would be awesome for guided reading time!

Rhyme 'N Learn uses hip-hop beats and mnemonics to convey a number of fairly complex #math and #science topics. Most are presented via YouTube with Khan-like explanations. The musical production is on par with today's Top 40 and the lyrics are accurate but young hip-hop heads will probably not be impressed with the lyrical delivery. #STEM
