Each week I bring to you helpful tips to become a more effective educator on the Always A Lesson fan page on Facebook. (Give it a quick like by clicking here!) I decided to start grouping my social media posts into a blog post incase you might have missed anything.
Time to get caught up:
- Low on paper? Grab white board markers and have kiddos write on the windows!
- Plastic table cloths make great bulletin board paper!
- Cut sponges into tiny squares = mini white board erasers
- Local eateries will donate straws for science and math lessons – just ask!
- Can’t afford a stage for Ss to share their writing?? how about a special costume to wear- hat, cape, sunglasses, etc!
- Have a jewelry hanger? Use it to store math manipulatives or frequently used classroom items!
- If you can’t buy classroom decor, it’s ok! blank classroom walls make for a great landscape for Ss work to be displayed
- Old cds make for great coasters, bathroom passes, or vocab review toss games!
- Grab an old baking sheet, place numbers or letters onto magnets = instant center activity
- Snag some unused moving boxes and set up reading nooks for your kiddos!#flexibleseating
(*note: these posts are sent out via BUFFER so they follow Twitter’s rules for word count and I had to get creative!)
Stay tuned for the next edition coming out in a few weeks!
