"Would You Rather..." Questions | Fun Get-To-Know-You idea for the first day of school! I did a force choice question 8 times - and then had the students predict how many different variations there could be. (2^8) We then discussed what this could represent... coin tosses, true/false tests. Great way to have fun and do math on the first day! by Spenner

I Can Cloud. I use I Can statements. As an end of the year project, we can use this cloud to make a timeline of all the things we've learned how to do this school year. I'll hang them up in the room and the kids can take them home the last day of school. by peggy

Cute idea for the first day of school.  I started to make a sign for the first day of school for Eve last year and this would be neat to go with it.  You fill this out on the first day and then one for the last day.  It was linked on simplyfrugal.ca by cristina

DIY cardboard Christmas tree This would be so fun for kids to decorate/color on. I love this! For leap week after thanksgiving to get in the Christmas cheer.

Time capsule letters. A fun idea for celebrating New Year's with the kids. Invite kids to write letters to their future selves. Agree on a future time or event to open and read the letters. This idea would be wonderful for celebrating birthdays or the first day of a new school year, too. Perfect for weddings...have guests record their hopes and prayers for the happy couple, to be opened on some future, agreed upon anniversary or event. by ophelia

Reorganizing the first aid shelf is on my To Do List, so I'm always looking for inspiration. Some of our Costco sized bottles are so big it's difficult to find containers tall enough for them without being overly huge. I like that this uses vertical space and you can put tall items on the top (assuming your shelving allows for enough clearance). by loinely
