WHAT IS IN THIS BOOK:

You will find the following in each monthly idea book from Teacher’s Friend Publications:

1. A calendar listing every day of the month with a classroom idea, and mention of special holidays and events.

2. At least four student awards to be sent home to parents.

3. Three or more bookmarks that can be used in your school library or given to students by you as “Super Student Awards.”

4. Numerous bulletin board ideas and patterns pertaining to the particular month and seasonal activity.

5. Easy to make craft ideas related to the monthly holidays and special days.

6. Dozens of activities emphasizing not only the obvious holidays but also the often forgotten celebrations, such as: Mexican Independence Day and Johnny Appleseed's Birthday.

7. Creative writing pages, crossword puzzles, word finds, booklet covers, games, paper bag puppets, literature lists and much more!

8. Scores of classroom management techniques and proven methods to motivate your students to improve behavior and classroom work.

HOW TO USE THIS BOOK:

Every page of this book may be duplicated for individual class-room use.

Some pages are meant to be copied or used as duplicating masters. Other pages may be transferred onto construction paper or used as they are.

If you have access to a print shop, you will find that many pages work well when printed on index paper. This type of paper takes crayons and felt markers well and is sturdy enough to last. (Bookmarks work particularly well on index paper.)

(9)

ADDING THE COLOR:

Putting the color to finished items can be a real bother to teachers in a rush. Try these ideas:

1. On small areas, water color markers work great. If your area is rather large, switch to crayons or even colored chalk or pastels.

(Don’t worry, lamination or a spray fixative will keep color on the work and off of you. No laminator or fixative? That’s okay, a little hair spray will do the trick.)

2. The quickest method of coloring large items is to start with colored paper. (Poster board, butcher paper or large construction paper work well.) Add a few dashes of a con-trasting colored marker or crayon and you will have it made.

3. Try cutting character eyes, teeth, etc. from white typing paper and gluing them in place. These features will really stand out and make your bulletin boards come alive.

For special effects, add real buttons or lace. Metallic paper looks great on stars and belt buckles, too.

LAMINATION: If you have access to a roll laminator then you already know how fortunate you are. They are priceless when it comes to saving time and money. Try these ideas:

1. You can laminate more than just classroom posters and construction paper. Try various kinds of fabric, wallpaper and gift wrapping. You’ll be surprised at the great combinations you come up with.

Laminated classified ads can be used to cut a heading for current events bulletin boards. Colorful gingham fabric makes terrific cut letters or bulletin board trim. You might even try burlap! Bright foil gift wrapping paper will add a festive feeling to any bulletin board.

(You can even make professional looking bookmarks with laminated fabric or burlap. They are great holiday gift ideas for mom or dad!)

(10)

LAMINATION: (continued)

3. Laminating cut-out characters can be tricky. If you have it enlarged an illustration onto poster board, simply laminate first and then cut it out with scissors or an art knife. (Just make sure the laminator is hot enough to create a good seal.)

One problem may arise when you paste an illustration onto poster board and laminate the finished product. If your paste-up is not 100% complete, your illustration and posterboard may separate after laminating. To avoid this problem, paste your illustration onto poster board that measures slightly larger. This way, the lamination will help hold down your paste-up.

4. When pasting up your illustration, always try to use either rubber cement, artist’s spray adhesive or a glue stick. White glue, tape or paste does not laminate well because it can often be seen under your artwork.

5. Have you ever laminated student-made place mats, crayon shaving, tissue paper collages, or dried flowers? You’ll be amazed at the variety of creative things that can be laminated and used in the classroom or as take-home gifts.

PHOTOCOPIES AND DITTO MASTERS:

Many of the pages in this book can be copied for use in the classroom. Try some of these ideas for best results:

1. If the print from the back side of your original comes through the front when making a photocopy or ditto master, slip a sheet of black construction paper behind the sheet. This will mask the unwanted shadows and create a much better copy.

2. Several potential masters in this book contain instructions for the teacher. Simply cover the type with correction fluid or a small slip of paper before duplicating.

3. When using a new ditto master, turn down the pressure on the duplicating machine. As the copies become light,

increase the pressure. This will get longer wear out of both the master and the machine.

(11)

Staying organized month after month, year after year can be a real challenge. Try this simple idea:

After using the loose pages from this book, file them in their own file folder labeled with the month's name. This will also provide a place to save pages from other reproducible books along with craft ideas, recipes and articles you find in maga-zines and periodicals. (Essential Pocket Folders by Teacher's Friend provide a perfect way to store your monthly ideas and reproducibles. Each Monthly Essential Pocket Folder comes with a sixteen-page booklet of essential patterns and organiza-tional ideas. There are even special folders for Back to

School, The Substitute Teacher and Parent-Teacher Conferences.)

You might also like to dedicate a file box for every month of the school year. A covered box will provide room to store large patterns, sample art projects, certificates and awards, monthly stickers, monthly idea books and much more.

MONTHLY ORGANIZERS:

BULLETIN BOARDS:

Creating clever bulletin boards for your classroom need not take fantastic amounts of time and money. With a little preparation and know-how you can have different boards each month with very little effort. Try some of these ideas:

1. Background paper should be put up only once a year. Choose colors that can go with many themes and holidays. The black butcher paper background you used as a spooky display in October will have a special dramatic effect in April with student-made, paper-cut butterflies.

2. Butcher paper is not the only thing that can be used to cover the back of your board. You might also try fabric from a colorful bed sheet or gingham material. Just fold it up at the end of the year to reuse again. Wallpaper is another great background cover. Discontinued rolls can be purchased for a small amount at discount hardware stores. Most can be wiped clean and will not fade like construction paper. (Do not glue wallpaper directly to the board, just staple or pin in place.)

(12)

Not every school has a letter machine that produces perfect 4” letters. The rest of us will just have to use the old stencil and scissor method. But wait, there is an easier way!

1. Don’t cut individual letters as they are difficult to pin up straight, anyway. Instead, hand print bulletin board titles and headings onto strips of colored paper. When it is time for the board to come down, simply roll it up to use again next year. If you buy your own pre-cut lettering, save yourself some time and hassle by pasting the desired statements to long strips of colored paper. Laminate if possible. These can be rolled up and stored the same way!

Use your imagination! Try cloud shapes and cartoon bubbles. They will all look great.

2. Hand lettering is not that difficult, even if your printing is not up to penmanship standards. Print block letters with a felt marker. Draw big dots at the ends of each letter. This will hide any mistakes and add a charming touch to the overall effect.

If you are still afraid about free handing it, try this nifty idea: Cut a strip of poster board about 28” X 6”. Down the center of the strip, cut a window with an art knife measuring

20” X 2”. There you have it: a perfect stencil for any lettering job. All you do is write capital letters with a felt marker within the window slot. Don’t worry about uniformity. Just fill up the entire window height with your letters. Move your poster board strip along as you go. The letters will always remain straight and even because the poster board window is straight.

3. If you must cut individual letters, use construction paper squares measuring 4 1/2” X 6”. (Laminate first if you can.) Cut the capital letters as shown. No need to measure,

irregular letters will look creative and not messy.

CLASSROOM CODE

One way to achieve a successful classroom management program is to utilize a

“Classroom Code of Conduct.” Discuss with your class the elements of good class behav-ior and write their responses on the chalk-board. After the class has reached an agree-ment on the classroom code, recopy it onto a sheet of poster board and display it in a con-spicuous place, or use the code on the next page. After you have displayed the chart in the classroom, have each student sign his or her name at the bottom with a bright colored felt marker. (Note: always try to list ele-ments in a positive manner and not with the disturbing “Don’t do...” method.)

MY BEST BEHAVIOR CHART

Encourage good behavior by having students keep track of their own ability to follow class rules. Begin by discussing the class rules with your students and posting them on the class board. Next, display a “Best Behavior Chart” for every student in class. At the end of each day, determine which students have followed the rules and tell those students to color in one box on their chart. Students that have received five colored boxes at the end of the week get to take a “Congratu-lations!” note home to their parents. If a pre-determined number of students each receive five colored boxes, celebrate with a class popcorn party or other special treat. At the end of the month, award those students that qualified each week with a “Best Behavior Certificate.”

HOMEWORK AWARDS

Having trouble with students not turning in their homework? Try this motivating idea! Collect all homework assignments in a large colorful basket. Close your eyes and ran-domly select one student’s paper. Award that student a small prize or make them helper for the day. Children eagerly do their homework

S-U-R-P-R-I-S-E

Before school starts every Monday morning, write the word “SURPRISE” large and in capital letters on the class chalkboard. Every time your class becomes unruly, give one warning. If they misbehave again, erase one letter of the word. If any letters remain at the end of the week, celebrate with a class “surprise.” If all the letters have been

erased, tell the students they will have to try again the next week to earn the “Surprise!”

STUDENT BEHAVIOR REPORTS

Set up a means to communicate with parents regarding classroom behavior and work habits with this simple idea. On a regular basis, discuss individually with each child their behavior and attitude during class. With the child’s assistance, fill out a report form to send home to parents. Make sure that you give parents the opportunity to respond and ask them to sign the report that must be returned to you the next school day. (File these returned reports to document student progress.) Make sure that you send behavior reports home to tell parents of good behav-ior, also!

CROSSWORD NAMES

Instruct students to create crossword puzzles with their

own names. Begin by having them write their first names

down the center of a piece of lined writing paper. Pupils

then add hobbies, favorite colors, personal traits, etc., to

each letter of their name.

Questions or clues pertaining to the

crosswords may be added at the

bottom of the page. Have students

exchange puzzles to be solved.

(Older students might like to use

their first and last names in the

crossword.)

NAME BRANDS

Many manufactured products are commonly known by the people who invented

them. For example, bluejeans are often referred to as "Levi's," a piano as a

"Steinway," and an automobile as a "Ford." Instruct your students to invent a

product that would carry their name. Begin by having them draw a picture of

the product and then write a paragraph explaining their reason why they chose

this product.

NAME CRITTERS

Ask the students to write their names in crayon,

using large letters, on pieces of art paper. The

chil-dren may then create their own name critter using

the outline of the letters.

Students might also like to scramble the letters in

their name before drawing the critter. Children can

then trade papers and try to guess the critter's

name.

NAME HEADBANDS

Name tags are particularly helpful on the first

day of school. However, by the end of the day

they are usually lost or damaged beyond repair.

For a practical solution, try name headbands.

These are easily made from strips of tag board

or laminated construction paper. Measure

the strips to fit each child and staple into

place. Write the child's name on the front of the headband with colored

mark-ers. The children will adore wearing them and you'll love the way they last all

week long!

NAME DISCUSSIONS

Discuss with your students the origin and meaning of some common first and

last names. Encourage discussion by asking how they feel about their names.

"Do you like your name?"

"How do you feel when you see your name in print?"

"Does anyone ever mispronounce your name?"

"If you could choose any name, what would it be? Why?"

"Have you ever discovered what your name means?"

"Were you named after someone? Who?"

"Do you have a nickname? How did you get it?"

CLOTHESPIN NAME TAGS

On the fist day of school, let your students find unique "name

tags" at their desks. WOODEN CLOTHESPINS!

Wooden clothespins, with student names written in colored

marker, can be a great way to assign

tempor-ary seating arrangements. Each child will also be

thrilled to find this small personalized gift at his/her

desk.

These special "name tags" can also be used to identify items brought to school,

art projects and of course, papers to be sent home to parents.

NAME CARDS

Write each child's first name in bold letters on a

large index card. Ask students to do the

follow-ing activities:

• Alphabetize the cards.

• Find names with the same first letter.

• Find the shortest name.

• Find the longest name.

• Find names that rhyme.

• Find names with the same vowel sounds.

The same might be done with the students' last names. Store

the cards in a file box. Students may perform the tasks at their desks after

classroom work is completed.

NAME GAME

Good listening skills are required to play this "Get Acquainted" game.

Prepare a name tag for each child in class and

place the tags in a bag or bowl. Instruct students

to sit in a circle on the floor. A volunteer must

also be chosen to draw a name tag. The student

whose name is drawn stands up, tells his name

and shares what he loves to do best. When every

name tag has been drawn and each student has

had a chance to speak, return the tags to the

bag. This time as the tags are drawn, students

must give the name of the classmate on their

right and what he or she likes best to do.

A variation of this activity could be to simply

eliminate the name tags and call on each student in turn. Each child must

repeat what every child before him has said before telling about himself.

(47)

NAME LIMERICKS

After introducing the concepts of limerick writing, ask students

to create their own limericks using their own names. Older

students will love this activity.

For example, a student might write:

There once was a lady named Ann,

Who constantly used a large fan.

When the weather was hot

She used it a lot

Even though she kept getting a tan.

NAME POEMS

Using letters in their names, students can describe themselves with this simple

writing assignment. Ask each child to write his or her name vertically on the

left-hand side of a sheet of paper. Instruct students to write poems about

them-selves using the letters of their names. Each letter begins the first word of each

line.

For example:

R

obbie is a happy boy.

O

nly now and then is he sad.

B

est ball player in class.

B

eautiful blue eyes.

I

nteresting and smart.

E

xtra special person!

NEWS NAMES

Instruct students to search newspapers and magazines for current articles about

people who share their names. Ask students to make a list of the people they

find and the reasons for them being in the news.

Assign a short paper on why they are happy or unhappy to have a first or last

name in common with such people.

Name tags can do more than simply identify students. They can serve to

moti-vate children by adding to the creative atmosphere of the classroom.

Try some of these ideas:

Plant a tree limb in a pail of plaster of

Paris. Decorative name tags can be hung

from the branches each month. You

might use apple name tags in September,

Jack O'Lanterns in October, and so on.

children can be given the name tags at the

end of the month as an award or they may be

asked to attach an original poem to the back.

A box of small white envelopes is all you need

for these name tags.

"Address" each envelope with the name of each

student. Use stickers or trading stamps as

postage. Arrange them around a cut paper mail

box which includes your

name and room number.

Provide each child with a white paper plate and ask

them to draw and color a self-portrait. Instruct them

to fill the entire plate with the drawing of their face.

Pin the finished plates to a class bulletin board. The

word "WELCOME" should already be in place at the

top of the board. Pin large paper-cut bow name tags

to each paper plate. Bow-ties for boys and hair-bows
