Thumbprint Self-Portrait. The kids make this based on their actual thumbprint and write a narrative about themselves... how old you are, things you like and don't like, your hopes and dreams for the future.... LOVE this!
Bulletin Board Inspiration! Teach your students about the continents using the poster sound recorder on your board!
About once a month I choose a student to receive the "positive postcard". I actually mail a postcard to their house! They love receiving mail from their teacher. Their parents especially love it...it's sure nice to know that their child is succeeding.
Fun idea when you have a sub: don't tell the kids where you are and then have them write about where they think you are/what they think happened to you.-----Oh, my gosh these are so cute!!! I subbed in a classroom today, where the teacher did this. I read the story "Miss Nelson is Missing" first. They were adorable!!! I can't wait for Mrs. Victory to see what are sweet students did. :)
