Are you tired of students coming up to you and telling you they are done when over half the class is still working. Instead of randomly thinking of something for them to do, or letting them always play on the ipad, let them have the power to choose!
Go over expectations for this choice board at the beginning of the year and show the students how to independently choose and work independently, quietly, and wherever they want to (or at a designated place) while the other students finish their work.
You can print this on Astro Bright paper, laminate and place on a poster board somewhere around the room where the kids can easily go look at it for access.
If they are done with their work they can turn in their work, then they will be trained to go look at the board and see what they can do NEXT.

This also includes four blank square choice cards for you to create your own!
