Routine: If a student finishes classwork/group work early or even comes in early at the beginning of class/end of recess. I would implement puzzles as a routine after finishing work. These puzzles have always felt like small games to me. It keeps students challenged, exercising different aspects of critical thinking, but can help maintain a classroom where students are still doing quiet, individual work.
