Great Idea!

I LOVE this idea! Maybe I will adapt it and have my students do a descriptive writing piece about the strange item. Thanks for sharing!

dojo

I'm also using the class dojo. The kids love it and respond really well, and it's totally free! I do two week cycles and hand out certificates to the students with the most points after two weeks.

My first year in grade 6, my students hung their backpacks on the back of their chairs. It works well if you have a spacious room and can leave extra space in between rows. Also means students...
