This "I'm done..." board is a great way to remind students of their choices once they have completed the current activity. By having this posted as a bulletin board or poster within the room, students would have a visual reminder of the acceptable options they have while awaiting transition to the next activity. This procedure would help maintain order as well as keep faster students busy.

Cool Bulletin Board idea to "spotlight" a student or famous person. I would do both. Maybe every week a different actor, playwright, designer, etc to research to extra credit or a weekly report, and every now and then a student, to make them feel special having been up on the same wall as a big name.
This is a classroom helpers board, but I like the idea of using it as a home faith formation thing - each pocket is a category of prayer and each stick is a person you know and you can have a visual of who to pray for what (with elementary-aged kids). Maybe this would be overwhelming or maybe it would help visually organize your prayers. Just an idea...
Program Board with Media Center Helper ideas. Helpers - to be named... Put slips in pockets with name of "helper" activity they can select when they come to help in the media center.
