- "Day Before" Activities Grades Various
On special days just before a holiday (such as Valentine’s Day) when students are harder to keep focused, I make up colored worksheets that are fun or can be used as a contest. Students know that when they see the colors, they will be having some fun while learning. I place these sheets randomly with my others. If students get too noisy, I just put one of the colored papers back on my desk. So far, it has always worked to get everyone back on task and students love the activities.
