      Choice Board...could be great for math options when students are finished with work. Good classroom management too.

    • Lane Beth

      Do you have early finishers, and they always want to know what to do next? The choice board can help, and it allows your students to make their own decisions on what to do next.

    • Rachelle White

      O love this choice board for fast finishers. This gives students a choice of what they would like to do when they finish ahead of others. Keeps them busy and keeps managment issues down

    • Tracy Hayes-Williams

      Choiceboard for extension and fast finishers. Colour coded by subject. Can change choices weekly/fortnightly/monthly. Brainstorm w English team.

    • Kathy Munson

      Awesome! Modify for K kids and use pictures. Great for early finishers, the choice board is a tool that ensures students incorporate a range of multiple intelligences, and/or learning preferences.

    • Amanda Payne

      CHOICE BOARD: Assignments for early finishers- reduces possible behaviors that would distract other students

    • Allison McDermott Shailer

      ACTIVITY: Choice Board for enrichment or early finishers. Color code by subject, learning style, or standard. Change choices weekly. Could also require all students to complete a certain # of activities per week or per unit.

    • Rebecca Westmoreland

      Do you have early finishers, and they always want to know what to do next? The choice board can help, and it allows your students to make their own decisions on what to do next. Matrix or differentiated learning. Can be adapted to suit learning management systems.

    CHOICE BOARD: Assignments for early finishers

    I can board. Would 100% use this in my classrooms so students know what they are doing for the day and also helps administrators and parents see what the objectives are for the day. Much better than having plain objectives written across the board.


    You simply post this up on the board and students must create a story using one phrase from each color. This is fun and challenging!

    This is an AMAZING lesson planning app. You can email the plans, print them out, etc., for record keeping purposes. Color coded for each students records. YES finally found a reason why I NEED an iPAD! Yay!!! #app

    Before each lesson I pick a Mystery Student to watch for. Sometimes during a lesson I say, "Wow! I wonder if my Mystery Student is totally on task!" All of a sudden, I have 15 pairs of eyes on me. If the Mystery Student follows the “rules” they receive a reward of some kind. If the Mystery Student does not follow the rules - a brief, vague discussion is had with the whole group about what we should be working on to earn "Mystery Student". In place of mystery walker.

    Reminder posters on what to do when students are done with task, so they stay busy and do not disrupt class if they finish early. Great for younger grades that need reminders.
