I wanted to start a thread about any great cool tips and tricks for kinder. DrivingPigeon just told us about her 5 minute clean up time trick. I mentioned my 1 minute magic trash tip. I know we have great things we do that could help others. I am interested in learning a few more myself....... What cool things to you do that help in your classroom???????? I'll go first. 1. You can put ivory liquid soap in regular paint and it becomes washable. 2. You can also store sentence strips in a long planter box. 3. You can use an over-the-door plastic shoe hanger (the kind with pockets for shoes) to hold office supplies - or center materials for that matter.
