Bright Ideas Round-Up!

Thanks for stopping by for this edition of Bright Ideas! I can't believe it has been 10 months since Bright Ideas began! I feel so fortunate to be a part of this link-up! I may not post a Bright Idea every month (my, have I been busy these past few months!) but I always make sure to read my bloggy friend's post!

This month, I am going to share some of my Bright Idea posts, along with a couple of my personal favorite bright ideas!

My first Bright Idea was all about engaging students outside of the classroom and use paint chips to inspire authentic writing. You can read this blog post {HERE}

My next Bright Idea is my favorite management tool! On this post, I shared all about my easy-peasy bathroom management procedure. Read all about it {HERE}

Last, but not least, I shared another one of my favorite management tricks. This trick will help keep all of your students accountable during small group work. You can read about it {HERE}

I may not have contributed every month, but I made sure that when the Bright Idea linky came around, I read my friends' posts! Here are some of my favorites!

This amazing idea came from Nicole at Teaching With Style. Nicole is one of my best blogging friends & is one of the kindest people you will ever meet... Not to mention, she has some amazing ideas! You can read about how she used whiteboard dots in guided reading {HERE}

I had to plan for a sub this week, and this Bright Idea came in handy! It comes from my friend Emily from Education to the Core, another sweet and amazing blogger. You can read her post {HERE}

This last Bright Idea is one that I just have to try! I usually do a Class Promise and display it in my classroom, but with the move to a new school, I just didn't have the time to do it! I feel in love with this sweet positive display from Teaching First. You can read about her sweet and positive idea {HERE}

I hope you've enjoyed the Bright Ideas I've shared with you! The fun doesn't stop here... Check out more of the Bright Ideas below!



  1. Love all of your bright ideas, Lizz! The bathroom duckies are way too cute. My sister would love that.

  2. Bright ideas indeed! I am delighted to see that the experience the kids have got with the bright ideas motivated them to do so much interesting and creative. By engaging the kids into the management of the classroom rules or having them make up their own rules is a great way of developing skills they will need in the nearest future. These simple ideas are just brought to kids in a more fascinating way but they already show great results. I won’t be surprised if at this early age the kids will be interested in going to college and looking for where buy a college essay online to make sure that they’ll have this much fun at college too.
