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

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

can't explain the house, but I can explain the "Divide by 0 thing" for those that haven't passed Grade 6 math.  It is impossible to divide by zero, you just can't do it. My teacher often joked that if one of her students divided by zero a black hole would open in the classroom and we would all be sucked in. by Lisa Jo

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 Superduper

Freebie...compare and contrast poster and Venn diagram sheet. This is a great poster to have in your classroom. I even thought you could turn this into a worksheet for the students to use.

Love this! A quote from The Perks of Being a Wallflower. “I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.” by vladtodd

"15 media minutes" sticks {well, laminated cardstock} they get 8 of them each morning.  I have their first initial on them and they can decide how they want to use it - use up all their time at once, or a little at time. I also give "bonus" media minutes for various things and for reading. (LD note:  could be a checklist reward - so many gold stars = media (or other reward) time. by daisy
