I use these Whole Brain Teaching attention getters on a daily basis with my ELL students. These attention getters are a great way to improve your classroom management. I usually pick one or two to teach the class at the beginning of the year. Then every month or every few weeks, I introduce a new attention getter, which my students can't wait for!!

Classroom Crafts to Celebrate the Chinese New Year

Classroom Crafts to Celebrate the Chinese New Year. This year, Chinese New Year begins on February 1st. Here are some fun and easy ways you can bring some auspicious Chinese New Year fun into your classroom.

From 2016’s monkey to the tiger, rabbit, or dragon, each figure is crafted in colored 18k white gold with a rhodium base.

We love crafts from around the world. Not only is it wonderful to get craft with new ideas, but also to learn about different cultures. These Chinese Cherry Blossom Fans are simply adorable a perfect craft for Chinese New Year –  or maybe even as a Spring Craft as we eagerly anticipate the warmer weather.…
