I think it is safe to say that most of my teacher friends spent the summer on Pinterest. I LOVE IT! This summer I found the "I'm Done" jar, and I immediately knew I had to make one for my early finishers. I just needed some time to process HOW to use it effectively. Here is the result of my efforts! :)
My "I'm Done" jar comes with its own cart full of activities based on skills we are currently covering. I bought this cart for $15.00 at Walmart. The top drawer contain various writing paper for rainbow writing, story writing, letter writing, iPad writing, etc.
The second drawer has math practice. For now we have a 100's chart here.
The third drawer has flash cards and journal cards.
The fourth drawer has games!
Today was our first day to implement this new system and the kids LOVED IT!
Other activities they may pull include: computer center, read a book, and clean pouch. :)
