Hi Member,
Do your students seem a little distracted this week? We know it's tough to keep students focused on school when the holidays are approaching.

Here are a few great video lesson ideas to help keep your class engaged and energized as you head into the holiday break.

Spice up almost any lesson with a gallery walk. Get students up and moving.

Use a number line to help students see the positives of good behavior.

Get instant feedback on the effectiveness of your lesson with a show of hands.

Do you have an activity that is successful in keeping your students engaged? Tell us what is working for you. 

And, there's still time to win a Flip video camera! We're giving away one every day until December 31. See how you and your fellow educators can win. Read on for more videos and some Common Core resources.
