"password of the day" sign.  I found this idea on ProTeacher.  You can hang this by your classroom door and have the kids read the "password" whenever you leave the room for lunch, recess, etc.  The passwords can be sight words, spelling words, important vocabulary.  These could work perfectly! by sabrina

Tabletop Twitter! I LOVE this idea! Pick a passage from a book you are reading {read aloud, book club book, etc.} and glue it to the center of bulletin board paper and have the students "tweet" their thoughts about the passage. Then you can hang it up in the classroom. by valarie

Place the word of the day inside the badge. As the children walk in the classroom have them read your word, when children ask you to tie their shoes or give a push on the swings, have them read the word! You can even make two and have your “special person of the week” wear it too! by Hercio Dias

This teacher is amazing.    I like this idea though. Every day have a quote for the kids to read and think about. Maybe write in daily journals about it. They can reflect on it and use connections and stuff. by Dacia Turnipseed

Susans Free Comparing Monsters - an Activity for I Need My Monster There are a variety of great language skill building activities that can be done with any book you read in your classroom. On the way to understanding complete story elements and construction students need to be able to describe characters and settings and to compare and contrast two or more of each. I usually begin a discussion of comparing and contrasting by having students use two shirts they can see in the classroom at the time two students; anything they can visually reference and find familiar. We then apply the same skills to comparing the characters in the book. A great book for comparing and contrasting is I Need My Monster by Amanda NollandHoward McWilliam I created this comparison chart for a student of mine. I hope you find it helpful too. Just drag it to your desktop and print. Have fun and Keep on Talking! Find me at Kidz Learn Language by graciela

Find a cool print of your monogram (this one below uses the couple’s fingerprints) with plenty of white space and have your friends and family sign it. Later, you can proudly display it in your new home (it’s important to pick one that will mesh with your decor style). If you like this idea, but don’t want people to sign on the actual print, have them sign either the back of the print or the frame. @myweddingdotcom by kathryn

And This is a good activity to do with kids because when they are finish doing it, it can make them a little light so that they can sleep alone. I think it's a good idea! by Dianne Nalepa

This is a great reading chart to have in any grade, including 4th - 8th grade classrooms! It is a chart that talks about goals students have for their reading and when they achieve different steps they can move up on the poster. I think it would be a great incentive in the classroom for kids to want to read more! I would probably make mine a little more colorful and creative, but I love the idea! by MOSCARDO
