My teacher uses a Noise Meter similar to this one. The Noise Meter is a cool way to remind students the correct noise level that they should be using! You just use the paper clip and move it to the appropriate noise level the students should be using.
It's called a "Blurt Chart". If students blurt out they take a happy face off the chart (they are velcroed on). They have 3 chances throughout the day. You can take minutes away from recess, etc. for each happy face taken off the chart.
Fun Friday stuff, not more learning. :) Plus, this post is hilarious. :) Fun Friday Idea-Kids who have earned the most good behavior tickets throughout the week get to choose first from the Fun Friday board!
Classroom Boggle-with letters! for kids who finish early! First off, I LOVE boggle! Secondly, this is an awesome way to keep kids busy if they finish early and it would be easy to change some letters at the end of each day or the next morning!
Just made this Question ball. While in a circle, Have students say the name of the person he/she is throwing to (to practice learning names). The person who catches it says their name again and answers whatever question their right thumb lands on.
