each student paints a popsicle stick and they are arranged to make a bigger piece of art.

Don't waste time sifting through piles of worksheets - save yourself the headache and create a “master book,” a tool that organizes all your papers and keeps them all in one place. Tackle your mound of papers by sorting through each one, tossing what you don't need and keeping one copy of every important worksheet. Place them in a 3-ring binder with dividers for each month.

Each popscicle stick has an activity on it {like spin 3x, jump rope, macarena, seat swap, etc...}. When I see that the kids are starting to fade away, I stop and say "man, our brains need to take a break...lets do a brain break." Then I randomly select a popsicle stick and we do the activity together. The kids absolutely go NUTS for these fun little activities. None last longer than a minute and it's a great way to get them focused!

Instead of having students stand around you with questions and such, they bring their clothespin up to you and you clip it to your clipboard, then they sit back down and you call them up when you're ready. HOW FABULOUS FOR Writer's Workshop!
