Looking for "I'm done, what do I do now?" -- Anchor boards? Edit: title of thread should say now, not know...I fixed it but it's not showing the change? :sorry: I came from teaching 5th grade reading, where I had 2 classes. That means I only had a few hours a day with them so I usually didn't have to plan much for early finishers. Now I'm in 3rd and I'm already overwhelmed with early finishers. I've heard of Anchor Boards but I'm not quite sure what they are. I know my old school used them in 4th. Basically the teachers glued library pockets to a posterboard and stuck laminated strips of paper in them with activities that could be done independently. I googled Anchor Boards but I don't see much. Does anyone use them? I'd be thrilled if I could find some already made. This is for 3rd grade. If anyone uses something else for 3rd grade that would be awesome - especially if it doesn't require many copies.
