Do you ever have kids waving their hands wildly or even worse, following you around the room while they are supposed to be working independently? If the answer is yes, you will love this freebie!
Each of my students have a ring of cards that they display on their tables as they are working. The cards say:
1. I 'm working fine.
2. I need help, but I can continue working.
3. I need help, and I can't keep working.
Each card is colored differently (I use green, yellow, and red) so that I can see them across the room easily.
These cards have really helped my students to discern between when they really need help, and when they can keep on working. Best of all, I have more time to help the students who DO need help.
