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.
Use colored dots to make groups easy. Put a different colored dot on each desk in a group. When you need to have a student from each table do something, you can simply ask for all the green dots to bring you the papers from their group.
Create a turn-in bin with clothespins that are labeled with each student’s name. When a student turns in their assignment, they can turn the clothespin over, giving you an easy way to keep track of who has completed their work.
