CREATE AN "I'M DONE" BOARD {Coffee and a Clever Idea}

In my class I use a "Must Do / May Do" board and am a bit picky about the May Dos because I don't want my friends to rush through the Must Dos to quickly get to a more desirable activity. 

However, we are now in that time of the year when we've had a chance to get to know our students and they are now well aware of your expectations. That means they are less likely to produce "less than their best" with the hopes of moving on to something they are more interested in.

This is a cute display of choices. In my classroom, I have designated Friday afternoon as "Finish Up Friday." It is one of my favorite hours of the week. It gives kids a chance to get things done and allows those who are finished an opportunity to explore a choice activity. 

I like the idea of using something like this instead of the "may do" section of the board because it is a more relaxed time of week and it would also serve as a nice goal for getting the work done in the allotted time frame.

Join me each weekday morning for coffee & a clever idea.
