Give each student colored index cards/post-its for their work space. During independent work time or group work, the students use the cards. A teacher I used to work with put red cards on popsicle sticks at the student work centers & prompted them to hold it up when they needed help, rather than calling out. Her classroom was always so quiet! by briana

Google docs If you don't use Google Docs in your classroom yet, you're crazy. Amazing the collaboration it creates with peers and teacher and how much students truly grow visually seeing you work with them on their writing. by Maiden11976

I use this to teach kids that some things are within their control (Play-Doh problems) and some things are not (rock problems).  I give them a set to take home as a reminder.  Throughout therapy I'll often ask, is that a rock problem or a Play-Doh problem?  It's one of my favorite tools. by rebecca2

I really like to get my students connecting what we are learning in class with the real world.  This creates engagement and further answers the question I addressed prior of “Why are we learning this?  We will never use it in real life”.  One way that I do this is by getting them to review different types of news articles which relate directly to the curriculum.  To that end I have created this free page which indexes recent news articles which I have used in my classroom. by michael

Rainy Day Umbrella: Every Friday our Friday Playgroup (basically storytime for little kids) has crafts... which means I have to come up with a lot of simple things they can do within 15 minutes. Yeash. Not easy. I have not done these yet, but have them on the schedule for March 2013.  I'm going to have them use stampers to decorate the plate (something we don't get to use often). by jimmie

The CCSS requires that we greatly increase the amount of work we do with informational text. This resource can help! Whether you use them with articles from magazines or an encyclopedia, information from a website, a chapter of a book, or a nonfiction picture book--these responses will work!   A pausing point is a place in a text where you want your students to stop, think, reflect, and write about what is happening. This resource can help you do that—and they are all CCSS aligned! by Kirakitty

Number Playdough Mats with Ten Frames (from A Differentiated Kindergarten) This seems like a really fun activity that could be used for math during community workers unit. If you use different community workers cars for different numbers and make each of them fun to look at and interesting to the students.  Plus what kids kindergarten aged wouldn't love to work with playdough. by limeyey

SARAH YOUNG DEVOTIONAL (JESUS CALLING) - HOPE FOR WHAT YOU DO NOT SEE; EAGERLY wait for it with perseverance. Among the five senses, sight is often the one that people value the most. I created the world gloriously beautiful, and I want you to appreciate beauty when you see it. However, even more beneficial than sight is hope, which is itself a kind of vision. It enables you to see—through the eyes of your heart—things that are not yet. The most stunning example of this is the hope of heaven. Your ultimate destiny is to share in My Glory! This is My promise to you, secured through My finished work on the cross and My resurrection.  Practice hoping for things you do not see— both for this life and the next. Ask Me to guide you into hopes and dreams that are in line with My will. Train the eyes of your heart to “see” these blessings, while praying for My will to be done fully and only. Discipline yourself to wait eagerly—with your focus on Me and the longed-for outcome. Remain hopeful and expectant as you wait with perseverance.  If we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance. —Romans 8:25 NKJV  “The glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one.” —John 17:22 NKJV  Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]. —Hebrews 11:1 AMP by margaret.ramos.982

These are some facts that J.K.Rowling let slip in numerous interviews. Facts that tell us what all happened nineteen years later…  ~ Azkaban no longer uses Dementors as guardians.    ~George Weasley married Angelina Johnson and had 2 children named Fred and Roxanne.     ~Harry made sure that the Wizarding world knew that Snape was a hero and on Dumbledore’s side.    ~Slytherin House became more diluted and was no longer solely pureblood; however its dark reputation lingers.     ~Harry lost the ability to speak Parseltongue.     ~Umbridge was arrested, interrogated and imprisoned for crimes against Muggleborns.    ~The Resurrection Stone is now buried in the Forbidden Forest after being pressed into the ground by a centaur’s hoof.    ~ Voldemort’s curse on the DADA position at Hogwarts has been lifted.    ~Viktor Krum fell in love with a woman back home in Bulgaria.    ~The Death Eater’s Dark Marks eventually faded to look like a scar. It will no longer burn or hurt.    ~ The Quibbler is back to publishing articles about the lunatic fringe & is appreciated for its unintentional humour.    ~Members of the DA still have their coins, as they are like badges of honor.     ~Neville Longbottom worked as an Auror before moving on as the Herbology professor at Hogwarts.    ~The remaining Death Eaters were killed or imprisoned in Azkaban for their crimes, with the exception of the Malfoys.    ~Luna Lovegood married the grandson of the Newt Scamander, author of ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’     ~Firenze survived his wounds and was welcomed back into the Centaur herd.     ~Harry will never become Headmaster of Hogwarts since an academic career just isn’t him.    ~Hagrid was still working at Hogwarts by 2017, at 88 years old.    ~Draco Malfoy really cares about his son, Scorpius Malfoy. He is growing him up to be a better person than he was.    ~Centaurs realized that “pro-human leanings were not shameful.    ~Draco and Harry never became friends, but they did come to understand and appreciate each other better.    ~Hermione tells Scrimgeour that she is not planning to embark on a career in Magical Law. Ironically, that’s where she ends up.    ~After his death, Voldemort is forced to exist in the stunted infant-like form that Harry sees in the King’s Cross-like Limbo.    ~Harry would  take his family to visit Dudley’s when they were in the neighbourhood (occasions dreaded by James, Albus and Lily).    ~Aberforth is still at the Hog’s Head “playing with his goats”.    ~The number of Dementors have been greatly diminished because despair and degradation have been lessened in the world.    ~Arthur Weasley fixed Sirius’ motorbike and gave it to Harry.    ~Nineteen years after the Battle of Hogwarts, the school for witchcraft and wizardry is led by an entirely new headmaster (“McGonagall was really getting on a bit”) as well as a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. That position is now as safe as the other teaching posts at Hogwarts, since Voldemort’s death broke the jinx that kept a Defense Against the Dark Arts professor from remaining for more than a year.    ~Hagrid never married, although he had a relationship with a giantess.    ~Kingsley Shacklebolt became the Minister of Magic after the Second Wizarding War.    ~Harry will not train to be an animagus; his “energies are going to be concentrated elsewhere and he’s not going to have time to do that.    ~Audrey Weasley is wife of Percy Weasley, and they both  have 2 daughters, Molly and Lucy.    ~In the aftermath of the war, the Order was disbanded once and for all.    ~Luna has twin boys named Lorcan and Lysander with Rolf Scamander.and apparently  travels the world, looking for mad creatures.    ~Hermione advanced the rights of magical creatures & eradicated the old pro-pure-blood laws in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.    ~The head of the Auror Office as of 2007 is Harry Potter.    ~Lavender Brown was attacked by Fenrir Greyback.
