I know you’ll like these creative ideas! I’ve also selected some to be featured on the main site. Thanks for playing along! This is just the top 3 teaching ideas that I had time to highlight from last week’s teaching ideas, you’ll see many more on Teach Junkie and featured on our facebook page. So a huge thank you for those who took the time to link up their fabulous teaching ideas!


1. Alphabet Countdown –  If you have seen any of the ABC countdown versions for the last 36 days of school for the primary grades, then you’ll love this upper el version! This creative teacher has her entire list of all 26 days ready to share with you including photo highlights so you can envision your class doing this too. If will be a great incentive to help keep your students on track and excited about each day.


2. Creating Digital Student Portfolios –  Here is the skinny on managaing tons of student photos and work samples using digital tools like Picasa. Is it possible to keep all of your photos organized so that you can use them to create student portfolios? Absolutely! Read this tutorial to find out what works, a filing organization system and fun ideas to present or use collages.

DIY File & Paper Organizer

3. DIY File and Paper Organizer –  I love creative DIY projects that include teacher organization! Here is a tutorial on creating a file or paper organizer that you can make for free {or inexpensively} with your favorite scrapbook paper. I think it’s also a clever way to store items in your closet too if you are looking for a way to store bulky materials with a binder or folder of master worksheets. What can you think of using it for? Do tell!

Thanks ladies. Your ideas are fantastic! Feel free to grab the “I’m a Featured Teach Junkie” blog button as your ideas are definitely worth the shout out. {woot}
