Things I Want To Do Next Year:
Organize my desk drawer (It's too late for this year.)
Actually pass back graded work.
Reading time at the end of class.
Offer math puzzle worksheets for students to turn in for bonus points.
Ask an ACT question every day on my warm ups starting from day 1.

Not collecting homework but giving homework quizzes to formatively assess.
Rearrange my room.
The Idea Box!
Folders for Absentee Quizzes
Review games other than review basketball
Way more writing about concepts, processes, and basically everything
Celebrate Pi Day in class
Introduce TI-83 calculators in every class at the very beginning of the year.
Things I Will Do Again Next Year:
Two nice things for every mean comment
Making students pay for each cuss word (except that I will use the money to buy classroom supplies)
Celebrity/Student Baby Trivia
Folders for Absentee Work
Streamers in the door way
Pictures on the bulletin board
Have students tell me about their weekends on Mondays
