I'm Done! Now What Jar for early finishers. Students who finish early often times can become disruptive because they are bored. These early finishers are great for providing options for high flyers. *Differentiation of Instruction*
The students read the passage independently, then travel around the classroom answering the questions on butcher paper. There can be stations with each station asking a question about a story element (i. one on characters, one on setting etc).
My teacher uses a Noise Meter similar to this one. The Noise Meter is a cool way to remind students the correct noise level that they should be using! You just use the paper clip and move it to the appropriate noise level the students should be using.
