We often hear, "I'm bored!" in class. When students say that simply hand them this sheet. They must choose one of the activities.
B- Blank Card~ Students are given a note card to fill with writing about what ever topic they choose.
O- Organize Books~ Students pick one of our classroom library book bins and organize the books.
R- wRite the Alphabet~ Students must write the entire alphabet (both lower and uppercase)
E- Equations~ Students are given a math sheet to practice solving equations.
D- Do Your Work~ They may choose to return to the activity the class is doing.
The original idea came from Becky over at I Lift Heavy Things. Be sure to check out her blog and the original post at the link below.
