If you could be something other than a teacher, what would it be?

Teaching Bag of Tricks!

My teaching bag of tricks for the summer of 2009, which included Bali and Thailand, included the above very basic items.  The balls of various sizes worked the best.  Seemed like kids loved to answer a question .... when it was linked to their catching a ball!

The recorder definitely did not work!  The balloons were fun.  The bag of letters from the alphabet worked great!  Card games like Old Maid and Go Fish were engaging as well.  Then of course ..... there are the songs and rhymes which last year were my signature piece with the elementary students.
