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

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

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

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

Frederick jones' theory talks about how motivation is student leadership. Providing students with jobs in the classroom will give them the change to take on the role of a leader. I envision myself applying this theory and assigning jobs to my students, in order to teach them about responsibility and working together to prevent chaos in the classroom. by carlani

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
