Do you have early finishers, and they always want to know what to do next? The choice board can help, and it allows your students to make their own decisions on what to do next.

Choice Board for enrichment and early finishers. In this example, lime green choices are MATH activities, dark green choices are WRITING activities, blue choices are READING activities, violet choices are SPELLING activities, and pink are CHALLENGE activities.
Choice Board for enrichment and early finishers, color coded by subject, change choices often.
Great classroom idea - Choice board for early finishers
This could definitely be modified for middle school. CHOICE BOARD: Assignments for early finishers

Critical Thinking Skills by Enokson, via Flickr (Bloom's Taxonomy sentence starters)
Enokson has created for us a kind of road map containing all the major critical thinking skills we need to know about. He put these skills into an image that you can download from Flicker. I have, however, took his image and turned it into an infographic-like embeddable HTML code to use on your website or blog. Check the code below if you want to embed it on your blog but please if you are to use this link anywhere else online make sure to pay credit to Enokson.
Sign language alphabet project for the school auction later this month. I like how it turned out. It is being printed as a 16x20" poster size. I will then frame it and hope for the best. I love how all their little hands look. Tovit even had a band-aid on his finger...very cute! I hope the parents like it and will bid on it!

Sign Language Activity Center. Visual and Kinesthetic activity. Students would use this visual chart to sign their sight words. For older students, use the weekly spelling words list or vocabulary from Language Arts, Math, Social Studies or Science units.

To play turn the blocks word side down. The child chooses a block and identifies the feeling. Then the child puts the block on the tower.
