Finished Work and Work in Progress Boxes
Grade Level(s): 1-2, 3-5
Submitted by: Heather Clark

This tip will help organize morning work and independent work throughout the day. I used two shallow boxes (plastic baskets could also be used) and labeled one with "Finished Work" and the other with "Work in Progress". I placed these boxes in front of my desk and as students completed their written assignment they put their work into the box labeled "Finished Work". When time was up the students with incomplete work placed their papers into the box labeled "Work in Progess". I would count both boxes to make sure all work was accounted for and allowed students with unfinished work time during the day to complete it. This method works really well for me because it helps eliminate papers being lost in desks!
