"Cell Phone Day Care" a place for students to put their phones so they don't have them at their seats - but doubles as a charging station to encourage them to put them there. Day 1 was successful - hopefully it will keep up and keep distractions out of the classroom!
Here is a product that contains materials to set up a recipe reading comprehension center.
