Put a class list (on cute paper, of course) in a picture frame. Use a dry-erase marker to mark students off of a list! Add a line at the top of the page to remind you what it is for. Field trip money, papers signed and returned, etc.
This could be adapted to suit my class! (via Team V’s First Grade Fun: “I’m Done” Cups) Students pick a stick from the “I’m Done” cup and work on an activity when they are finished with their work. Teachers can range the activities depending on the grade.
