My Teacher Friend: Math Benchmark Tracking. Students chart their own math benchmark test data with post-its. This took most 5th graders in the class 20 minutes! Data you can USE to drive your instruction!
Change from "chore card" to "good job" card for my classroom...every time you are caught doing a good job, an A on a test, turned in work early, etc get a punch...after 12 punches get a reward...no homework pass, early to lunch pass, food or drink at desk, bathroom pass, etc.! What a great idea for kids :)
