I have lots of little things that I wanted to share with you, but none of them seemed to be worthy of an entire blog post. I thought I would share some of the little things I do in my class to help keep me
One of my favorite items is my Band-Aid box . . . nothing fancy (obviously), but seriously a huge time saver for me AND the nurse. Plus, it keeps my kids in the room and not in the nurse's office. I just buy Band-Aids at the Dollar Tree, Big Lots, or just on sale. You can usually get a box for a buck! Whenever the kids need one, they get one! No need to explain the boo-boos, just get a Band-Aid!
Another helpful hint came about after I had seen some of the cute ways people organize their kids' writing. I had this pencil already in my room. I put names on small clips and hung them below the pencil. When the kids have finished revising and editing, they move their clip so they can meet with me.
Another thing I like to do is keep a blank piece of paper on my Daily 5 bulletin board. I write my 'sloppy copy' anchor charts with my kids, then put up my laminated, nice copy over the blank pieces of paper. I don't have to worry about spacing things out!
Well, I hope these helpful hints are . . . helpful!
Have a super school year!!
