Secret Service (Kindness Activity)...have one for each student in an envelope, maybe have each student have a specific task (e.g. talk to someone who is alone, say please and thank you, hold the door open for someone, tell your teacher thank you each day)...or have them exchange names for the holidays to perform acts of kindness (lesson about taking care of one another).
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.
