The next project was easy because it required only a $1 and no labor...I just had to buy the crown at Michaels! So the idea behind this crown is to let your students know when you are in session during guided reading groups and not to be disturbed unless of emergency (I always say if your hair is on fire then you can disturb me). Great idea! I had tried turning on a push light but it wasn't enough. Last year I had a stop sign and a go sign on magnets and I hung them behind my head to let them know when I was/wasn't available but I don't have anywhere to hang them this year :( Hopefully this will do the trick!

At our school we use a TON of PostIts, mainly because we are teaching all of our readers/students to track their thinking. I made the following for a couple of teachers and of course there is one just for me! At my student tables their is a stand up picture frame with their Kagan numbers for pairing and support, I plan to do a variation on the other side to be a PostIt holder.

The next few projects are based off Kinder Gals ideas from their post Managing Behavior. A magnetic sign is hung by your whole group area. Anytime the students don't do the right thing you just take one magnet down, for all the magnets left the class gets points (or happy rocks). My board fits in with my Western theme (check out the ribbon, so cute).

The other idea is very simple. As I was cleaning and rearranging over the holiday I had a couple containers that I thought would be a nice addition to my desk. I glued ribbon onto them and they are like new. With the addition to my PostIt holder I'm all set :)
