I’m sure other teachers do something similar to this, but this has been my best time saver so far this year. I love that kids are interested in my life, but they usually ask questions at the WRONG time! In an effort to solve this problem, I used an old tissue box and a Target dollar store bin along with the form (I attached at the bottom). The kids know there are appropriate times to fill out this form:
- in the morning when they are done with warm-up work
- free choice time
- when all work is finished
I hope you guys can use this and it will save you some time!
