"I'm Done Jar" - a list of activities that are fun & meaningful for the kids to do after they have finished their assignments.

*FREEBIE!* Need a first day activity? Looking for a great way to help your students get to know each other? Here is a fun activity that is designed to get students mingling and finding out about one another. Using the sheet students will be able to ask interesting questions and learn classmates' names as they seek out to find the perfect people to get them a bingo. After the first (or first few) bingo, we love to share our answers and see what we can find in common.

freebie friday and good character bingo

Great first day activity.

When students complete a book or their completed reading log, they get to pick a sucker! Now, some of these suckers have black dots on the ends of the stick. If they are lucky enough to pull out one of those, they get to pick from the treasure box or another sucker. Easy & FUN to do!

Popsicle sticks for an "I'm Done" jar...Students pull a stick when they finish early

Rhythm Game: "Busted!" Pull a stick from the jar, clap its rhythm. Pull another stick, clap both rhythms. Continue cumulatively. If you pull the "busted" stick, you have to put all yours back. Kid with most at the end wins.
