new student packets. the teacher makes 5 extra of everything at the beginning of the school year so that when a new student comes midyear, she has a name tag, beginning of the year info, labels for folders/journals, etc. for the student.
Learning on the go- for the car trip- write letters, shapes, or words on a paper plate edge and cut between each one. As they find the letters etc on signs or around town they get to fold it down. - would be FRER for a scavenger hunt too!
