I recently blogged about this amazing app, which I found out about on Pinterest. Click here to read the blog post! It does take a while to do the first assessment, but after that it gets easier as kids know what to do and how it works!
#2: Techie Tip
Speaking of technology, here is a pin with a very helpful tip, especially if you have ever accidentally closed a tab on your computer!
#3: Reward Jar
This is a great way to reward students while giving them the freedom to choose their reward! I have students spin the dice on the smart board if they are chosen as star student, and I have choices like "1= play the gong, 2= prize box, 3= sit by a friend," so I'm thinking one of the choices could be "reward jar"!
#4: Bottle caps with note names
I really like this idea of having line notes written in blue and space notes written in red. Then students won't ask, "Which E???" This could work really well in centers...have a bunch of bottlecaps and staff paper, and then they have to write a word using bottlecaps!
#5: Center organization
Speaking of centers, I love this sheet for having students decide their centers:
It would take a bit more preparation to have several centers up and running (I usually just do four at a time), but I love the idea of students working at their own pace, choosing which centers they want to do.
