"I'm Done!" jar for when students are finished early: write some activities on popsicle sticks, and when students finish early, direct them to the jar where they'll pull a stick and do the activity listed. No more "I'm done! I'm done!
I think you could copy Fountas & Pinnell workboard icons and mount to construction paper.This doesn't take up as much room as a pocket chart! A center organizer that ISNT a pocket chart! I absolutely love this!
Working Wall that shows samples of all the work done throughout the unit. Great way to display student progress over a longer period of time. This type of board allows classroom occupants and visitors to appreciate the whole learning process.
