“Letters to Next Year’s Students” – Student Instruction Sheet
(Featured in this post)
On the directions, I ask students to include the date and to include the teacher’s name. You can remove this if you don’t feel it’s necessary. This was useful for me when I applied for National Board Certification, “evidence” for a specific entry required the date and the teacher’s name on it.

“Pick Pass” – Student reward/incentive
I created a reward for students based on something many of them wanted and was free for me – preferred seating group members. A pass allows a student to specify someone they want to be in their group next time I do seating arrangements. Fine print allows me to switch students out if it’s ever an issue (although this isn’t a legal system so I could’ve done that without the fine print anyway, but I feel it’s good to communicate the expectation).
