Paper chain flag with stars

The second grade classes worked together to make a paper chain flag in honor of Veteran's Day. Each child was given two stars to take home .

The Inspired Apple: Astronauts Abound! {space activities for 1st grade}    But this tree map really gets me thinking about careers in general- and how the kids could study all of these different careers and make these maps for them.

REWARD- I love this idea of rewarding the students with a "rock star status" chair. This chair will give the young students incentive to have good behavior.

Showcasing students' work

Maybe I could use hooks to hang clipboards in the hallway. Great way to showcase student work, they could each have a clipboard and choose which work they want to publish.

Noise-o-Metre

My teacher uses a Noise Meter similar to this one. The Noise Meter is a cool way to remind students the correct noise level that they should be using! You just use the paper clip and move it to the appropriate noise level the students should be using.

Making more colourful words

Could be good for word work station. Write a boring adjective at the bottom of the paint strip on the most boring color. Give each student a paint strip and they can use a thesaurus or a word wall to think of "more colorful" words for their strip.

Have one person sit in front of a white board while the others write a positive phrase about them.  Take a picture to give to the student.

What a great positive group activity! Have one person sit on a chair in front of a white board while the others wrote a positive phrase about them. Take a picture to give to each person. A very creative and positive group activity.

Warm Fuzzy Jar! When students are caught being kind they get a "warm fuzzy" to put in the jar.  When the jar is full have a class party!

Don't you love that warm, fuzzy feeling? The jar says: Do something kind and get a warm fuzzy. Put it in the jar. When the jar is full you get a class party! Can easily modify for home behaviors - positive reinforcement.
