Peter C: Students often see the Periodic Table as a "hard" thing to learn and use. This poster/display could be used to show that it isn't, and in fact can be used to have fun with. I bet that there are loads of words and phrases that can be made using the letters wishing the Periodic Table! I will be using this approach with my year 8 class later in the year and will be using this resource to introduce the idea.
Portable Teacher's Work Bag - wonder where I can get a bag like this? Apparently it's a Thirty One Organizing Utility Bag, around $25. This would be great for all kinds of things including: mobile bill/office bag, knit/crochet bag, and go-bag for the car.
This teacher has created a list of all the things she does at the end of the day to make sure she is organized and ready to start the day as soon as she walks into her classroom the next day. Such a great idea. All the little things add up like copying papers, writing assignments on the board, organizing your top drawer.
