Hi Sal

A couple years ago I noticed some of my kids were finished and wanted to =
"just draw". I though since we only see the kids once a week and loose =
time for holidays and assemblies that I would change the way I =
facilitate the classtime. I post on the chalkboard what we are doing =
and or what we are finishing and also what is our focus of study next. =
As kids finish and I have several that are done I often stop the class =
worktime and introduce the next "project". I don't let the kids start =
something new until they have met the objective of the first activity. =
I teach a lot of related units so things seem to flow into the next =
activity fairly easily. I have an art room so this works fairly well. =
I pass out very little supplies - they all go to get their own stuff =
from various locations around the room. I use my old cart from the "a =
la cart" days which I keep fully loaded with basic supplies. With this =
constantly flowing art lessons we seem to accomplish a little more each =
year. "Project #2" is kind of a carrot dangling in front of them, but =
every kid must show me their work in order to grab the carrot. If they =
rushed and didn't really finish, I send them back to finish and fine =
tune. I also often write simple directions on the board so that they =
Hear me teach, See me demonstrate, and Read simple step by step =
directions. This helps them to move on on their own. Hope this helps.
