I saw a cute idea today for when students need to present to the class. My teacher called it a presentation stage. She used a cardboard box and cut a slit in the top and an open face in the front. In the slit she hung a string across the top so that she can clip papers in it. The stage frees the kids' hands up in order for them to hold notes or to point to the paper as they speak. No more awkward holding of the paper and trying to present! Here's what it looks like.
