"I'm finished, now what Sra. Humphrey?"

I hear this comment from students MANY times throughout the day.  I've tried making posters with ideas of activities that they can do when they are finished, but the students still have trouble choosing an activity and doing it without interrupting the students who are still working.  So my solution was to have an interactive spot in the room where they can look at choices, and then take a card for the one they want to do.

I used ribbon, clothespins, and laminated choice cards.  I plan on adding new choices throughout the year that relate to the topics we are studying.  I'm looking forward to trying this out when school starts back!!
