Thrift stores

I always check thrift stores first. Go with an open mind and you may be surprised at what you find. I have found solid wood book shelves many times, usually around 10 dollars. A can of paint later,...

Strange Method

Through the years, I have tried various forms of jobs for students. Never felt it to be worth the time and effort for many of the reasons others have already posted. However, there were still things...

Ice buckets

I second the ice buckets. I have used mine for 10 years without complaint. I would try dollar stores before Wal-Mart though. They usually cost less at a Dollar General or someplace along those lines.

Penny Challenge

I tried the penny challenge. I had a great time collecting change wherever I saw it and marking it on the grid. It totals over $600 without impacting anything.

Brain Chains

I felt the same way, so I renamed them Brain Chains. I am very interested to read what others may have used.

LETRS Training

Phonics was not taught during my college days. After years of researching on my own, my state finally realized the need and sent teachers for LETRS training. It had everything I had found on my own...

This is not my original idea. I read about it years ago, probably on this site. The original poster used continents to name her groups. So simple and skill based as well. Ever since, I have tried to...

When I taught in a compartmentalized setting, I used to stagger the due dates an use a rubric. It was the only way I could manage grading projects.

ice boxes

Years ago, we used ice trays to make ice in the freezer. Then transferred it to a bin that was stored in the door. Most people now have ice makers but the bins are still in the dollar stores. They...

Sometimes you just do

I had a student in a similar situation. I rummaged through our donated supplies, found two uniforms that fit. Each day, the student came to school, washed up, changed into clean clothes, and even...
