SUPER Classroom Tip and SUPER(bowl) GIVEAWAY!

Well folks, the day has come. Our city is once again waiting on pins and needles for the big game where our Broncos will take on the Panthers to try to get Peyton one more ring!

To celebrate, a bunch of fabulous Colorado teacher bloggers and I are teaming up to offer you some SUPER classroom tips, and some SUPER prize packs!

My SUPER quick classroom tip is The Secret Object. This is a trick I only learned of last year, in my tenth year of teaching! I can't believe it took me so long to find it.

With The Secret Object game, my room has never been cleaner, quicker. You take a few seconds to scan the room before announcing that it's time to clean up, and put a secret object in your head... a pencil on the floor, a piece of trash that needs to be thrown away, a chair that needs to be pushed in, etc. Then as the kids are cleaning (and desperately hoping they get the secret object) you watch to see who cleans up your secret object! Once everyone has transitioned to whatever you instructed, you can announce the winner! This year I am in a school that uses reward coins that students can use in the school store, so my winner gets one of those. Last year I simply gave high fives, and my second graders loved it just as much. I would give away a random amount of high fives (25, 65, 100!) and they loved if they got a high number, and it was great skip counting practice.

I hope my SUPER tip helps to keep your classroom SUPER clean!

Now, here are the prize packs up for grabs...! There will be three winners who will win the SUPER items below, as well as a pack of more than a dozen SUPER TpT products. Just enter the Rafflecopter below, and visit the other blogs listed for additional entries!

Have a SUPER day! I sure hope our Broncos do!
