During my language arts block, students spend part of their time doing center activities. They may have to stop in the middle of an activity to meet with me for guided reading. They leave their center activity and go back to it when they're finished meeting with me.
To let other students know that the center that has been left out is "work in progress," I created some cards that can be placed over student work and materials. The student's materials and place are "reserved," and other students know a student will return to the area. It's a way of saving a spot.
The cards can be copied on card stock and laminated. The packet includes color and black and white versions.
The cards work well when students are using math tools or working at literacy and math centers.
