Enjoy these three fun resources for classroom management at the beginning of the year, and all year long!
* I Am Going to Call On... (Fun way to randomly call on students! 36 cards including things like "Someone who is smiling," "Someone who has curly hair," and "Someone who is wearing green.")
* Tickets to Today's Lesson (Build excitement and anticipation for your fabulous lesson by "selling" tickets at the door. 1 sheet of printable tickets includes 5 different "price" points (3 smiles, 2 laughs, 1 handshake, 1 positive attitude, 2 compliments). Tickets feature a stub for students to tear off and write their name to put it into a drawing for a prize, if teacher desires.)
* Cost-free Prizes & Incentives (Reward students for a job well-done by handing them a coupon for a prize that doesn't cost you a thing (homework pass, lunch with teacher, sit with a friend, 5-minute free time, technology pass, teacher helper for a day). Can also be used as incentives or in tandem with Tickets to Today's Lesson.)
Middle school students will love the inventiveness of these resources, and you'll be pleased by the engagement and eagerness you get as a result.
