It turns out you don’t have to buy a dozen Scrabble games to do this project; You can buy a pack of 100 tiles for less than $5 on Amazon. This opens up so many possibilities! I love the way these Scrabble Tile coasters turned out, and you can customize them with different words. Maybe even use blank tiles (or the back) to make spaces in between words to write a message. by meraaitjie

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. by keisha

Math bulletin board-by  now your students should learn the number of ways you can say a problem or ask for a solution - this is a fun way to do that. First have them choose or you choose one of the four operations, then have them show you which of the quadrants applies to that operation and have them select one of the words within the quadrant and use it properly in a problem. by MJ Bokuniewicz

Crochet in Color: Lots of Free patterns, and I agree, I always go with the smallest hook when make baskets, bins, etc. as they aren't as useful if you have to shape them, imagine putting lots of magazines or something in them and the sides keep falling down, the only time I use a bigger hook is if slouchy is what the design calls for any way. by brianna

Sizzix Tutorial | Bubble and Gelli Print Album by Anna-Karin Evaldsson With gelli printing you can quickly make many pages for a mini-book. All of them will be different but they will still coordinate. Instead of using my embossing folders to make patterns on the gelli plate, I prefer to emboss white paper and use that. It makes clearer prints, requires no clean up and you can use these papers too afterwards. by alisha

I use these in my faith formation class but I can see using them in the home too.  There are many lists online of good deeds for children.  This is a fun way to implement them.  The students take a "Grace Stick" home and fulfills the deed and returns it the next class meeting. by kitty

These steaks are a treat and a great way to make an inexpensive cut of meat memorable.  You can use bottom round (best), top round, or a thin cut sirloin for this dish.  The steaks should be cut about a 1/2 thick. Mine were a little thicker, so I pounded them with a mallet to thin them. by jamie_1
