I saw something similar to this on pinterest and loved the idea. My students made the paper chains so it's a true classroom built tree. by gayle

I couldn't find small Santa hats so I made my own out of felt. I also used a more round vase and ribbon on the front instead of "ho ho ho". The stick is a big candy cane ornament from Pat Catans (the directions used a dowel and paint---too complicated for me) I love them but I don't know how to post my pic. Lol by elise

I picked up yellow sand buckets from the dollar store.  I had to switch out the shovels so they would match my pink & green theme.  I decided this would be a perfect gift for several of our friends who have summer birthdays and needed boy & girl versions. by nanette

pinner says Football made by me, my mom, and my husband.  This is my son's football we have in our yard.  My husband cut the football out of wood.  My mom painted it with outdoor paint, I cut out the vinyl letters with outdoor quality vinyl, clear coated it a few times, and then my husband attached it to a stake.  So far, I've made one more, and currently working on two more. by rhea

I knew someone like this. I always knew it deep down, but after I cut her out of my life, I realized she was most definitely doing to me what she had done to every single other person she had ever met. I'm so glad I've gotten to a point in my life where I know I'm worth more than to allow some people to rent space in my head. by LucyB

FREEBIE! These number puzzles are great for students to practice ordering numbers and can be used at your centers or as an activity to enhance your small learning group. I like to have these sitting at my small math group table and students get started on these as everyone arrives. They are self corrective so they can be used individually or in the small group. by janelle

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

Painting in a bag (my little one was about 9 months old here). This was a craft that we made for my mom. I put white paint on blue paper and stuck it all into a gallon sized storage bag. She just squished the paint around. I also like to put white paper in with blobs of different colored paints. . . she can see how they mix together to make other colors. Photo and original idea: Kristen Shawley by cara

How I grow my tomatoes: in the hole, put in sea mineral salt or epsom salt (2 tablespoons), 1/4-1/2 cup fish emulsion, potassium vitamins, calcium vitamins and one whole, ripe banana. Pinch off the bottom 3-5 branches and bury the plant up past the nubs from where you took the branches off. I also bury gallon jugs next to each one with small holes cut into the bottom side facing the plant roots. This is what I use to water them so that I know by gayle

This is a file of a teacher big book of the song lyrics to Must Be Santa. I needed to practice the song with my students for their Christmas program. I knew they would need a visual to help them learn the song and so this is what I made for them. Hope you can use it in your classroom. I know that your students will love it! Mine have really enjoyed the big book and their smaller book. The clip art is just adorable!-Alma Almazan by marilyn

It is small enough that it won’t be embarrassing for the student but it’s big enough that I can see at a glance who is having trouble with the topic and who is doing fine.
