Bright Ideas Hop

Hey everyone!

Do you ever find yourself in the hallway before specials, lunch, or any other transition to another place and find that you are a few minutes early? Happens to me all the time!

The kids start talking, they get louder, and are restless.  But by the time you'd take them back to class, you'd just have to turn around and head back again.  I've been doing some little tricks to help reign the kiddos in and do educational things at the same time, especially with the not wasting a teaching moment thing. And Common Core surrounding us everywhere! And I want to share my bright ideas with you...

 I'm participating in an awesome blog hop, about bright ideas!

-Learning letters? Maybe learn the ASL alphabet!

-It's a great way to practice and review!

- Clip them on a ring and you are ready to go! Switch it out through the year for whatever topic you are on.

-Like the math flash cards, these could also be clipped together on a ring.

What do you do in the hallway?
