I'm Done Centers Freebie and Purchase Orders

First of all, do y'all know that TPT now accepts purchase orders. That's awesome. I spend so much of my own money on TPT and I know you probably do to so just wanted to pass that info along.

Next, I have been working on something for my students that always finish early and say I'm done what can I do. I created I'm Done Centers that I want to share with you for free. A little explanation first. There are big signs for each center that states the name of the center and what choices they have at the center. The little center signs I am going to use as bucket labels where I will keep each center and its materials. I have not yet decided how I want to let them use them though so feel free to share your ideas. Here are a few of mine:

*When they are finished they just go over and pick the one they want to do (which may mean they pick the same one every time)
*Create a rotation schedule and they are allowed to go to only one center once a day. I'm thinking since it is always the same students that finish first they are going to run through these centers so fast and so often that they will very soon become bored with them.
*Let them make their own schedule on Monday in their journal of which one they will go to each day. Again, this way they only get to use one per day.

Here are a few preview pics of what I made. If you want to download yours for free just click here.

Hope everyone enjoys! Don't forget to read my last post to find out about my common core buy one get one free offer going on this week!
