    I post daily morning work on the board, have since day 1, they are so well trained now that when a parent came in to talk we were able to do so for 15 minutes, in the room, and she commented on how nice and quiet it was! I was very proud of them. It took a few days to get them used to it, most mornings it is silent reading but sometimes it's a spelling practice activity, writing to me (a way to practice writing friendly letters and for me to do anecdotal observations of writing/spelling skils, this is not graded), sometimes they do a math activity. I still have to give a gentle reminder, usually I praise 1-3 kids who are doing what they should "If you are doing what Katie is doing then you are doing the right thing, thank you" I teach 3rd but this works at all grades.
