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.
I actually like this bulletin board for the beginning of the school year. I just might have to do this :)
Read each description to the class. Provide explanations if necessary. Students will think of a classmate that the description describes and write that student’s name on the line. Inform students that they can change their votes as needed. However, they can only write another classmate’s name once.
