In a classroom it is inevitable that you will have kids who are done before you have even finished handing out the activities, and others that seem to never get caught up. For those slow pokeys, I have my 'unfinished business bin'. It sits right next to my 'hand-in bin' and is a classroom essential right from day one! When it is time to end an activity, students who are finished put their work in the 'hand-in bin', students who are unfinished pop it into the 'unfinished business' bin.

Have your class tell you some things they will miss about summer and things they are looking forward to school. Good conversations to be had!
