I post a different picture each week and students write one asking and one telling sentence about the picture.  The goal is to make them “sparkle” by adding details and checking for capitalization, punctuation, and spelling.  Students write the sentence in pencil first and after proofreading are allowed to make it “sparkle” by tracing over it with the gel and glitter pens. by john

Music worksheet activity: Students are instructed to roll the die, write down what they roll, and build measures. If the note they roll is too big to fit in the measure they are working on, they must re-roll until the right one is rolled.

The students read the passage independently, then travel around the classroom answering the questions on butcher paper. There can be 3-4 stations with each station asking a question about a story element (i.e. one on characters, one on setting etc). Each stations has enough squares for each student in the class to write their answer. The question can be posted on the butcher paper, or on the wall. Students must support their answer with evidence from the story. by ofelia

GENIUS: After my students write a piece I have them leave it on their desks when they go to lunch or special area classes.

How this teacher manages: instead of having classroom jobs, she had a boy and girl "helping hand" of the day.  The two helpers were responsible for all of the classroom jobs (line leader, door holder, running errands, etc.) Just write each students' name on a cutout of a hand and hang the hands on the wall and flip the hands each day.  It is such a super easy system, and it works out so that students get to be a helper about once every other week. @Stacy Lynn by mindy

From website: Every second Friday or so, I take the last 30-60 minutes of the day to have "Ketchup and Pickle Time". Underneath the ketchup card I write down the names of students who have work to "catch up" on. If they have more than one piece to do, I might write a number beside their name. If a student has no work to complete, they become a pickle and can "pick something quiet to do" (drawing, card games, reading, etc.) by vanessa

Have the students make their writing "more colorful" by using paint strips. Write a boring adjective at the bottom of the paint strip on the most boring color. Give each student a paint strip and they can use a thesaurus or a word wall to think of "more colorful" words for their strip. Put the best word on the brightest part of the strip. Hang all of their strips on the door and they can use those words to help "make their writing colorful!" by josie

Use several plastic (or glass) cups, pouring white batter in them, divide between all cups. Add food coloring to each cup for the colors desired. Mix each cup and then put a little of each color in each muffin cup in small blobs. Then drizzle other colors over the blobs. Bake as directed.

there are so many different ways to use Jenga in therapy-- here's another one: write on the blocks that build up families- build a tower with the blocks and talk about how it represents our homes, then remove blocks jenga-style and relate the missing blocks to selfish or unkind actions, teasing, fighting quarreling, disobedience, etc.. the tower (our families) get weaker with each block that is removed. GREAT idea! by Superduper
