:| Well, I've been spending a lot of time brainstorming new ideas for the upcoming year. One thing that I would like to add to or modify is my "after the test" assignments. Usually, my test are long and take the entire class period, but there are some days when kids finish early so of course I try to have something for the students to do. As of now, the choices are reading magazines, newspapers, or their library book or a book from the reading center; crossword puzzles, and sudoku. The kids seem to enjoy them at first, but after a while they become bored. Any suggestions?
