End of the day routine

Does anyone have a great idea for the end of the day routine? I have a very active group that can't even handle getting their mail and backpacks without causing complete choas. I need some little tricks to get us where we need to be with the things we need.

Oh my gosh, me too!!! I was actually going to post something similar after today... we have two different dismissals with a 10 min "lull" in between so I haven't quite figured it out yet. I'm definitely looking forward to what responses you get!!

Ask questions about things that were taught for the day, and give stickers for correct answers.

Another thing I sometimes do is to divide the class (What's left of them.) in half and have one team member on one side ask a math facts (9+7, later in the year multiplication questions) Someone on the other team answers (The student who asked the question picks who answers-you can have boys pick girls if necessary.)

These are good wrap up/educational time fillers.

I had a class like that last year, and I would call a few kids at a time to get their things together while I read to them. It worked wonders because they wanted to be quiet so they could hear me.

Closing Circle

Could you have a closing circle time where you quietly process the day and go around and maybe tell one thing that they learned/liked/remember? Using your own quiet voice, perhaps they can try to use theirs? (Well, it sounds like a good idea. . .)

Silent Ball

I had a group that I would call a few at a time to pack up, and then we would play Silent Ball. They could toss a small beach ball from one person to another, but if they talked they were out. Not sure why...but they loved this!
