Keep a pile of comics and magazines in the classroom for a variety of activities. These can be used if a quiet reading session is needed to end the lesson, or after a rowdy activity. Pictures from the magazines can be used for writing and conversation prompts. Pair work is fun - students can be given assignments of looking for pictures of vocabulary items, verb activities, and describing things to each other.
