Time taken away
My CT and I are trying to figure out things for students to do when they have time taken away (from recess or fun Friday). We have them work on assignments they have not finished, but they finish them quickly because they think they can leave after. We do not want to make them read or do other types of work because we want them to love reading and enjoy doing their work, but we have no other ideas. HELP!!!

Wow, okay I completely agree reading should never be a punishment, Maybe you could have the students do other task that would help both you the teacher and the also help the student. Like maybe organizing, or helping others.

Reading should never be a punishment, I agree! I think this scenario is dependent on the grade. I think I would create a packet of assignments for the student to complete at this time. You could also have them organize the student library, sharpen the pencils, etc. I personally don't feel taking recess away is a great method. I understand taking away Fun Friday, but recess is a chance to get the wiggles out for kids (also dependent on the grade). Students don't receive enough exercise during the day and recess is a great way for them to receive this. However, I understand you are an intern and this isn't your classroom. SO with that being said, I would definitely encourage the packet, pencil duty, organizing the classroom library, or even asking other teachers ahead of time if there is anything the student can do for them.

Sounds like this is the best course of action because taking away their recess should encourage them to get their work done ahead of time so they can participate.

I would have the students assist you with a project. This could be helping around the classroom, ripping out worksheets for homework, tidying book bins, and work stations etc. I would have them participate in bettering their environment and for themselves and their fellow classmates.
