FABULOUS idea- sight word password. Have kids say the password each time they come into the classroom. VIP gets to stand at the door and take the password. If a student doesn't know that password, our VIP can give them a clue or just tell them what it is. The password is on the door all day, so they are getting a lot of practice. I have the sight word posted inside of the classroom as well.

Use colored dots to make groups easy. Put a different colored dot on each desk in a group. When you need to have a student from each table do something, you can simply ask for all the green dots to bring you the papers from their group.
