Polka-Dot-Wednesdays March 21

March 21 2012

Wow! This week has gone by so FAST! I can't believe it's already that time again for ..................


I found many neat things on Pinterest and other Blogs.

Ellen Jackson uploaded these ideas to Pinterest!
These goodies are really great ways for teachers to motivate students before their BIG STATE ASSESSMENTS.


The Paper Drop OFF 

This blogger acknowledges Laura Candler for this great idea.
The envelopes are laminated and names of the students are placed on the back of the envelope. This system acts as a check-off list to ensure all students have turned in assignments. Since the envelopes are laminated it's easy to write the assignment using visa v and then wipe off.


"Sentence Surgeon"

LOVE THIS IDEA!!! The objective is to fix up a sentence by adding a synonym or antonym. Visit the blogspot for many neat ideas. 


Author's Purpose

What a great tool to use within the classroom. It's fun and very inexpensive to make. The creator used a box of kleenex and wrapping paper to create the cube. You could use the cube for Author's Purpose or Genres.

I hope everyone enjoyed the neat ideas.
