Here are my 5 back to school must have favorites (and a FREEBIE):
#1 If you want an awesome, cute and organized binder in minutes that you can edit in MS Word, check out my Ultimate Fully Editable Binder. It is LOADED with 26 forms to keep you super organized.
#2 Mastery Club is wildly popular! Thousands of teachers are using Mastery Club at grades 1-8 to challenge their students to learn something new. The Hall of Fame Wall is a great incentive for students and this program is EASY to run. Parents love it, too!
#3 I want my students to run our class bank and manage all of the financial duties associated with it. I can't teach without having a Classroom Economy in place.
#4 Teaching about famous people is a great way to incorporate all kinds of writing tasks as well as sneak in a public speaking task. My Biography Project has everything needed (including my website links) to write a file folder report and have students dress up and give their speech. Use the entire 6-week project or customize it to fit your needs. I love this project and so do the students and parents.
#5 Is it Christmas is August? :) I know its early to be thinking about Christmas, but now is a great time to stock up on my 12 Days of Christmas Math Problem Solving Dilemma. It's a fun SMART Board format lesson that students love.
FREEBIE! I love this Math Helper Chart! It's perfect for students to keep in their journal.
