"I'm done. What should I do now?" I know that we have all heard it. By setting up a share or reflection center in your room it gives that routine and structure for kids. When I hear my students say that, I send them to the share center to fill out an artist statement or photograph their work. I also keep their planning sheets here. So, they know what to do next!
#2) Keeps me organized
I keep art to display organized in this center. It HELPS me so much when it is time for art show. This center is next to my desk. I like having it away from the students work area. You could even consider having the students mat and tag their art for you.
#3) Meeting a standard
By having my students reflect, I am meeting state and national standards.
Check out the YouTube video to see how my share center is set up.
