Back to school means trying trying to wrap my brain around the next few months and making sure I am organized and ready to go. Part of that is making sure my space and some management structures are just the way I like them… so I thought I would share some of my favorites with you!
And now for your freebie!!! This is a fun little way I keep track of points that makes it a student task and not a me task (I sound lazy huh.. but I really like to have my classroom run itself!) Anyways. So you put the point card at the kids tables. I like to put just the color of the table in the point card but you could easily do team names or have everyone draw pictures of themselves. I put in a sheet protector… well… because I tend to put everything in a sheet protector for durability. So I say… “First table done gets points” or “Thanks so-and-so, give your table a point.” Rules for the point card is you can ONLY touch if I say so. And if you do touch it… it automatically goes to 0. Works well starting this time in kindergarten (and anytime in first grade!) Click here for your freebie!
