This would be great for transitioning students from desk work to circle time. Students will learn what is expected of them in order to start the lesson. It will visually represent what needs to happen during the desk to circle transition.
So going to institute this 'Clean your room' check list for kids! Laminate and use a dry erase marker. =) No more checking and rechecking - "Is my room clean yet, Mom?" Don't call me until the checklist is complete :)
