I'm Done Jar- TBA's most popular post!

I'm Done Jar for students who finish assignments early, they pull a stick w/ a short educational activity to do until class moves on... more exciting than the old "read a book" standby.

Great idea and easy for students to remember while in line. You can even add pictures of students when you "catch" them following the 4s. Line behavior, very positive, love it!

Beaded number rods for subtraction! Great visual for students with special needs. Adding concrete materials when performing simple operations, helps build number sense to ensure students are relating quantities to symbols (numbers).

Whole class journals..each student can write in them on a certain topic and the class can read them at different time. Great 'I'm finished early' activity!
