"I'm done! What do I do now???" Ever heard that question?? There are a lot of great ideas floating around out there to help answer it, but here's my solution: I decided to put baskets on each of the tables with activities for the children to do when they are done with their work early or need to fill a few minutes between class activities.
smart pals" in each basket and a set of dry erase markers for them to practice sight word tic-tac-toe, nonsense words, number writing, math skills, etc.
