How many times have you heard the question “What do I do now?” It has been the bane of my existence in the classroom for going on 28 years now. No matter how many times I tell the children what they can do when they finish their work, they just can’t seem to do it. I’ve seen these “fast finisher” boards and whatnot around for a while now. But when I look at them, they just seem to hard for first graders, especially at the beginning of the year. Also, a lot of them involve me checking work when it is finished. I just don’t want to make that extra work for myself. I needed to come up with my own version of fast finisher board.
How Do I Get Started making a fast finisher board?
Enter Dollar Tree. Every few days I stopped in to browse around just to see what they have. When I last stopped, I spotted these. (Dollar Tree no longer carries these. You can find a similar item here.)
