Classroom Management Ideas
Kick start your classroom organization by designating different learning studios around the room. An idea would be to print out the Studio Cards and placing them into a picture frame. Then use a dry erase marker or a Vis-a-Vis marker to write on the picture frames. Once you start to deploy Phase One write in what the students need to bring to each studio.

Level Up Ideas
Level Up Ideas from Marcia Kish. Follow Marcia on Twitter and Instagram for more level up ideas.
Level Up Idea One:
Start to build and generate a Phase One checklist for the first month of blended learning. Even if you are only going to deploy Phase One day a week, provide the students with a checklist for the different studios. The checklist should include directions, a reflection aspect, and what the students should bring to each of the studios.
Level Up Idea Two:
Learn how to manage and deploy content onto your Learning Management System or Google Classroom. (A Learning Management System can include, Schoology, Canvas, Moodle, etc) Watch videos on YouTube that will teach you how to use your LMS or Google Classroom. Note: Google Classroom added a lot of new features over the summer. It is worth watching videos to learn more about the new features.
