Some Pinteresting Stuff...Back to School Ideas

I love, and I know you do to, Pinterest! 

Here are some really great ideas that I am thinking of using this year in my class.

Is this not the greatest, most positive & motivating idea ever?
A Pat On The this idea!

How about this one? There is always a student or two that has all the answers anyway! :)
This will cut down on my small group distractions!! 

Neat Idea! One student is selected to be the "Ask Me" person (to help students who need assistance) while the teacher works with small groups-no disruptions for the teacher!!!
I love the mystery walker idea. Pull a chip with a student's name on it before leaving the room- don't tell whose name is on the chip until you get back to the room. This way all the students follow the hallway rules because they think their name is on the chip. When you come back into the room, if the person on the chip followed the hallway rules, they get rewarded.
FUN Hallway Behavior Management Idea. Before you leave the classroom pick a chip with a students name but don't tell who it is. They are the mystery walker and you are watching that student the entire time. If they do a good job in the hall, they get a ticket or prize.

I keep threatening my husband that I am getting him this for his birthday...ha!

OK~ last one...
Random acts of positivity!
The kids would love this & it is so simple!!
High five notes. Good idea!

That's it for now! 
I am headed back to school tomorrow!
I am super excited...probably won't sleep tonight!!
Is anyone else crazy like that?? Please tell me that I am not the only one!!
I will try to post tomorrow if I'm not too worn out!! :)
