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:
- Toilet paper rolls make for great microphones for students to present their final drafts of written work to the class
- Use cardboard boxes cut into basic shapes + velcro = homemade puzzles to review content!
- No time or money to laminate or buy page protectors? Stick worksheets in a ziplock bag and use a whiteboard marker!
- Moving boxes make great “reading caves!”
- Build up your classroom library by partnering with another teacher- swap books weekly/monthly
- Pool noodles make for great geometry lessons, flexible seating options, and center manipulatives
- Place student desk name tags on the front of the desks facing outwards so students don’t mess them up while working
- Post on social media asking neighbors and friends for item donations they are already parting with to cozy up your class
- Umbrellas make great personal reading shacks in or out of the classroom
- Recycle old and damaged books by turning the pages into bookmarks
(*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!
