One problem with blog hopping is that I see ideas all over the place which inspire me, and then I totally forget where I found that idea in the first place.
I found a very cute sign on one blog that they used for students who finished early, and always say that awful phrase, "I'm done - now what??"
I used to have the "I'm Done" jar that had popsicle sticks that students could choose for something to do. Wasn't my favorite...although it did work well.
Last night I decided to make an "I'm done - Now what?" packet that matched my room colors (black with bright colors). My hope is that this will diminish the constant raising of hands and calling out "What do we do now?" (even though I have already told them quite a few times what they could do when they are finished..lol) Bless their little tiny 2nd grade hearts...it just sometimes drives me nuts when they do not listen.
This will allow me to display their options on the wall or board, and they can always refer back to it without having to interrupt me.
