I have far too many classes to do this with and my kids wouldnt appreciate it from a student teacher, at least not in class time. But, for those of you with the same class throughout the year and with younger kids, this is a great idea to show them that you appreciate each and every one of them.
Good behavior chart: I find this is the best and most effective way to recognize my girls for good behavior or doing required chores. Any time a catch them using manners, getting ready for bed without asking, being nice to each other, feeding animals etc. I drop a bead in their jar. They can hear the bead if I drop it from a distance so they know instantly that someone did something right. They get $3 when the jar is full. It works wonders and seriously worth the weeks of bead drops. I al...
This is "a little self-assessment flip chart. I have made one for each student and it will sit on the corner of their desk. It is small enough that it won’t be embarrassing for the student but it’s big enough that I can see at a glance who is having trouble with the topic and who is doing fine..I hate nothing more than to have a student get skipped over in daily work time because they seem to be getting the work but then a test/assessment shows they really don’t know what they’re doing."
Picasso oil pastel by grAde 6 student. I love this each student was given a photocopy of a Picasso painting to observe and copy. The students did have an artistic license and were able to change things. They all enjoyed this task and all the work was good they then went on to make their own self portrait being inspired by this first piece. Art with Kylie Wickham
Classroom art project for school charity auction/Gala.... This was an eighth grade class project...a graduating class! Each student chose their favorite bible verse which is featured below his/her name on this art piece which is loosely set up to resemble a newspaper spread. To the right are a collection of Catholic prayers over which beautiful die-cut crosses were strategically placed. A local framer matted it and framed it beautifully.

25 Manners Kids Should Know #1: When asking for something, say "Please." #2: When receiving something, say "Thank you." #3: Do not interrupt grown-ups who are speaking with each other unless there is an emergency. They will notice you and respond when they are finished talking. #4: If you do need to get somebody's attention right away, the phrase "excuse me" is the most polite way for you to enter the conversation. #5: When you have any doubt about doing something, ask permission first. It can save you from many hours of grief later. #6: The world is not interested in what you dislike. Keep negative opinions to yourself, or between you and your friends, and out of earshot of adults. #7: Do not comment on other people's physical characteristics unless, of course, it's to compliment them, which is always welcome. #8: When people ask you how you are, tell them and then ask them how they are. #9: When you have spent time at your friend's house, remember to thank his or her parents for having you over and for the good time you had. #10: Knock on closed doors -- and wait to see if there's a response -- before entering. #11: When you make a phone call, introduce yourself first and then ask if you can speak with the person you are calling. #12: Be appreciative and say "thank you" for any gift you receive. In the age of e-mail, a handwritten thank-you note can have a powerful effect. #13: Never use foul language in front of adults. Grown-ups already know all those words, and they find them boring and unpleasant. #14: Don't call people mean names. #15: Do not make fun of anyone for any reason. Teasing shows others you are weak, and ganging up on someone else is cruel. #16: Even if a play or an assembly is boring, sit through it quietly and pretend that you are interested. The performers and presenters are doing their best. #17: If you bump into somebody, immediately say "Excuse me." #18: Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, and don't pick your nose in public. #19: As you walk through a door, look to see if you can hold it open for someone else. #20: If you come across a parent, a teacher, or a neighbor working on something, ask if you can help. If they say "yes," do so -- you may learn something new. #21: When an adult asks you for a favor, do it without grumbling and with a smile. #22: When someone helps you, say "thank you." That person will likely want to help you again. This is especially true with teachers! #23: Use eating utensils properly. If you are unsure how to do so, ask your parents to teach you or watch what adults do. #24: Keep a napkin on your lap; use it to wipe your mouth when necessary. #25: Don't reach for things at the table; ask to have them passed.
