task cards

exit slips

I used them for math last year in middle school. I would stop class about 5 min. before the bell would ring. They would write a sentence summary of the day's lesson and I would give them a problem...

locker tags

I use whatever I want - usually cute pages from a notepad or the things that are used on desks for nameplates. I either tape or hot glue them to the lockers (ours are metal) and at the end of the...

Yep - that's me! :)

I splurge and go to each year and order one. I see them at book stores and that's where I bought my first one, but you can get them personalized online. It makes me feel like more...

Yep, we got a Frigidaire and it's AWFUL. It stopped cleaning dishes about a year after we bought it. It was $300 tax and all; I really wish we had put that money into a better machine. We are just...
