Just wanted to share a few favorites from my ever-growing Pinterest collection. These three are from the Classroom Management board on my Classroom in the Middle Pinterest page. Click on each image to view the original Pinterest link.
“Ten Classroom Procedures That will Save Your Sanity” is a blog post from Teach 4 the Heart that offers classroom tested ideas for simple, but ever-present, problems like pencil sharpening and bathroom breaks.
“Bonding with Our Students” from Secondary Sara combines responses from a number of secondary teachers to answer the question, “What tips or tricks do you have to bond with, earn respect from, or get to know your students better?” Lots of thoughtful responses are included under the categories of activities, conversations, and authenticity.
Grading Student Notebooks with Mailing Labels presents a cool idea for a time-saving way to use a grading rubric to grade students’ notebooks. It is from Kovescence of the Mind. Pretty amazing what she could fit on one mailing label!
I hope one or more of these will be helpful in your classroom, and if you have a great simple solution to a persistent classroom problem, I’d love to hear about your idea, too!
