ideas for a new year:
Just wanted to share a fun way I keep in touch with my seniors. I give them a little graduation animal that they feature in a post-grad pic when they're on vacation, at a cool event or at college. We use a class hashtag to see each others' adventures. #ohtheplacestheyllgo pic.twitter.com/5qqRGBuH8j— Julie Jee (@mrsjjee) June 4, 2018
I had my students vote on teacher superlatives for Teacher Appreciation Week. It was a lot of fun to overhear students in the hall talking about what each teacher won. This was a fun project to carry out! #teach180 pic.twitter.com/R5MbKIx6Vy— Sarah Carter (@mathequalslove) May 12, 2018
PBIS reward cards
The teachers wrote their own names on the back so that when they were redeemed, he office could see who'd given them out. They weren't the same 12, but they were usually similar.

this awesome proof idea

I already buy students their favorite candy for their birthday but now I want to up my game. I will use my Student Council to help with logistics instead of actually creating a new club but here are my ideas:
- birthday brag bracelets
- schedule a Remind message on their birthday (all at the beginning of the year and then I don't have to think about it!)
- and suggested by someone on Twitter that I don't remember, paper balloons attached to a dowel rod (I'm thinking I would have StuCo make these ahead of time, then I could stick it in the handle of their locker on their birthday morning)
teacher appreciation gifts
Again with my Stu Co but mostly me...I plan to buy these cute post-it holders from Naeir for all the teachers and then make their name out of vinyl to put on each. I am all about the positive vibes this year!
I am jumping headfirst into Jennifer's awesome whiteboarding scripts for Geometry.
dry erase book
Still a work in progress but I finally cleaned out all of the pages I've been shoving inside of page protectors. I'm putting them in order by course, printing front and back, color coding them, laminating them, and then binding them into a little book. I'll store them in my classroom carts and I can add to them at any point.
weekly parent emails
Thanks to this post I have it all set up where students can take a survey every Friday and it automatically sends out an email to the parents and me. I can't wait to see how it goes!
