I'm done cup... For fast-finishing kiddos

"I'm Done" Cups

This could be adapted to suit my class! (via Team V’s First Grade Fun: “I’m Done” Cups) Students pick a stick from the “I’m Done” cup and work on an activity when they are finished with their work. Teachers can range the activities depending on the grade.

Action cup

fun idea for classroom management/transitions. the "action cup!" write different actions on popsicle sticks, such as "pretend your legs are spaghetti" and have one student pick an action for the class to do each time they transition!

If you have extra time or kids are getting antsy, pick a stick and do a one minute activity. Great for management

One minute activities to get the kids' blood pumping and to break up seatwork time. Say "activity time" choose a stick and set the timer.

Primary Possibilities: Teachers Love Ikea

Inexpensive ideas for using IKEA products in the classroom. Time to go shopping!too bad the nearest IKEA is like 3 hours away

"have you filled the bucket?"-classroom management introduced with the book "have you filled a bucket today?", each time a student makes a good choice, or shows respect, a pom pom is placed in their cup and once the cup is full the student gets a coupon for a reward (i.e. doing their work in their socks or extra time in centers, etc.)

My new behaviour management system this year. The clear cups will give continual visual feedback. if our board isn't magnetic maybe this would work

Goal Setting in the Classroom- love this. Students set smart goals, ones the can measure. I even set a goal and reflect on it too. Kids can check in on me and see how I'm achieving my goals as well.

Each popscicle stick has an activity on it {like spin 3x, jump rope, macarena, seat swap, etc...}.  When I see that the kids are starting to fade away, I stop and say "man, our brains need to take a break...lets do a brain break." Then I randomly select a popsicle stick and we do the activity together.  The kids absolutely go NUTS for these fun little activities.  None last longer than a minute and it's a great way to get them focused!

Students have to write in a log every time they do not turn in their homework on time and explain themselves. This helps teachers keep track of how many times the same student does not do his/her homework, makes students think about why they did not do their homework, and establishes accountability.

Love this! File crate with each student's name on it. File work for them to do when they are "done" that is differentiated. you can also put work in there that they need extra practice with. I'm thinking big YES!! :)
