Five Things Friday: Volume 3

Happy Friday! Today, I'm continuing my tradition of sharing five short classroom ideas/snapshots with you. I believe these ideas though not worthy of their own blog posts are worth sharing!

1. Two colored counters made their first appearance in Math Concepts as we continue to work on integers.

Now, I just have to figure out how to engage my students in using the counters without encouraging them to build towers with them instead of doing their math. :(

 2. I'm jealous of these inequality posters that my husband made for his classroom. I need to find a way to incorporate them into my classroom decor next year!

You can find these posters on Shaun's blog

3.  I've become so much more organized this year that I had to invest in some more plastic sleeves (affiliate link)!

 I use these plastic sleeves to keep my copies separate. This year, thanks to Angela Watson's 40 Hour Teacher Work Week, I've been making all of my copies for the ENTIRE week at once. I used to only ever get ahead a day or so with my copies, so this is $6 that I am happy to spend!

4. The dish drying mats that I bought at Dollar Tree this summer are a life saver for my chemistry class!

Last year when I taught physical science, I found that we were wasting a lot of paper towels whenever we went to dry our lab equipment. This summer, I picked up three drying mats at Dollar Tree. They live on the back counter so that we always have a place to put our lab equipment while it dries.

5. I did some more room decorating in the form of certificates, plaques, and crystal apples from being named a Teacher of the Year finalist.

My "Sarah Hagan Day" award was happy to be joined by two new friends.
