    During small group time, I have a list of Must Do/May Do activities that the students can work on so they leave me and the group I'm with alone. They are things they can do with the current spelling/vocabulary/grammar etc. I printed up those things on the rack cards and the kids can keep them in their folders.

    I just got my Vista Print order in the mail. I ordered business cards that have the appointment stuff on the back. I plan on using them when I need a conference with a parent. I also bought magnets that look just like my business cards. I also bought a calendar that has pictures from my family and students from previous years. The students are wearing a mask so you can't see who it is. Mostly it's my family and places around my community.

    I'm high school, but the "Say Something" strategy can be used at all levels. I use the rack cards for the question stems:

    Front:
    [​IMG]

    The back has the "Make a Comment" and "Make a Connection" stems, but it also has my name and school on it, so I don't want to post it here. LOL.

    Anyway, those are my rack cards. :)

    Great ideas guys!! I ordered business cards and small magnets with my contact info for parents. I also ordered a stamp that says sign here. I think I am going to order a poster and some rack cards ( if I can figure out what to put on them!). Oh yea_ I teach 1st grade.

    I was thinking of using the rack cards for a IPICK reminder card for the students- from the daily5- at the behest of some members on here I have begun studying it- not sure, but it seems great to help students pick good fit books- so I am making my rack cards now with it. I was thinking I might add to the back of it some of those stems bandnerd shared, too. Not sure, I need to have some space from it before I drive myself nuts.

    I just decided to order some address labels to label my DVDs. Right now I have a bunch for books, but not for DVDs. Also, some sticky notes that remind about when students give their speech. When we have staggered due dates they always "get confused" and try to go later.

    Nice stuff...

    I'm always amazed at the creativity that I see here. Imagine a website that is geared toward business and marketing, and teachers are taking over!

    Love it & thanks for the heads up bandnerd!

    Those are great INteacher... But I have one question.. Do you have a persistant problem with kid's falling asleep in your class? Just wondering what prompted you to make that postcard :)

    Four years ago I did when I taught a lower level class but not really a huge problem. Mainly about 5 kids who basically slept at least three times a week. I have only used 4 of those postcards :lol: really a waste of time and effort

    Oh wow! I never realized. Is that the 'free with shipping' standard number in an order? I really like your say something lesson. I've used it many times before. I should get some cards too.

    Yep, that's free with shipping. I'm glad you like the lesson. It's the best strategy I use in reading. :)

    How did you make the behavior chart? Someone posted a link on a blog to upload to vistaprint but it did not work. I also want to change some of the words on the chart.

    You can view some of my VistaPrint creations at http://fun-in-first.blogspot.com
    Look under Labels on the right and click on Vistaprint. The majority of these ideas were borrowed and recreated for my needs.

    I chose a small banner (free) - went to solid colors - chose black. Put a graphic I had already uploaded in the required graphic spot, then chose advanced editing (that's the only way I've found to get there). Then I did a search for each of the colors I wanted and when I found solid colors, I cut them into rectangles and inserted them into the banner. I started with the two ends first, then worked my way to the middle, so the green would be the largest, because they end up overlapping each other. Then I entered text boxes for each word, chose the font & color and placed them on the colors. It sounds complicated, but it's really not. I just hoped it makes sense! :dizzy:

    I'll try it. But did you get the order already and it came out the way you wanted or are those pictures you posted of what you ordered but have not received yet?

    These are pics of what I have ordered in the last week - but have not received yet. I can say with 100% honesty, though, that I have NEVER had anything come out differently from how I ordered/designed it at VP.

    I tried to make one last night and it was a bit confusing. I'm going to just make it with construction paper. That will work.
