  1. For early finishers, I made though bubbles using questions from an old mailbox book and then put them into the bubble gum machine plastic bubbles. The kids can answer the questions and check their own work.

  2. This year, I was going to add a menu board. Several options were going to be task cards. Your blogs have definitely given me some inspiration to use them more this year! I like the folder idea. I was trying to decide how to keep my students accountable for their missing work or assignments that need to be remediated. I thought about a "must do/may do" type menu, but I like your folder better.

  3. This past year our school was fortunate enough to get Google Chromebooks so my early finishers would get these and were allowed to play educational games on them.

  6. They usually read or work on their math facts. I'm looking for something better for them to do and your task cards seem to be just the thing. They're in my wish list but I'd love to win them. :-)

  7. I'm a resource/inclusion teacher and I have them work on any unfinished work from their core classes.

  8. For Early Finishers I always have a folder of items they can work on....sometimes it is to finish a project they are working on, other times it is a word search to reinforce what we are learning! That way it is a treat to those that finish early and doesn't feel like more work because they finished early!

  9. I have a box of math activities for fast finishers that are games that have higher level thinking skills involved. I also allow the students to read if they wish. They are also allowed to work on unfinished work or projects we have going.

  10. My class, when completed with their regularly assigned work and any "U.O.Me" work, worked on genre projects. It is from a Scholastic resource by Laura Witmer called "Independent Reading Management Kit: Genre". With each genre study, there are nine projects that can be completed to show mastery of skills. I chose 3-4 mandatory projects based on CCSS currently being assessed, but the rest were choice-based. The students could choose to do one more or all of them. The hardest part was creating a sample for each project so the students could see, hold, and refer to one that models my expectations. I used their projects when conferencing with students during guided reading block to discuss their progress, challenges, and giving suggestions for improvement. At the end of each genre unit, the class would vote on the best of each category. These students received a certificate for their effort. The kids loved it!!! Next year will be easier since I have all the samples created. :o)

  11. I have several puzzles they can chhose from - jigsaw, cubes, block by block, brick by brick, rush hour, etc.

    On an additional note, I can not get the A-Z task cards to download. I get some message about a long script. Any other way I can get them?

  12. I have puzzles, word searches, etc that I let them work on related to the content we are learning.

  16. I have a visual in my classroom with their options: read, draw, or do unfinished work from their folders. I like the idea of having something more meaningful though!

  17. I have an early finishers board where they can pick a quiet activity to work on as the children finish up. For my consistent early finishers I usually take a moment during a conference to encourage them to use the higher order thinking enrichment activities.

  18. My students always read a book, but I'm really interested in finding something different. It always seems like the same kids are done and they always end up reading a book. I'd like to be more creative.

  19. Most students worked on assignments from other classes or read silently. Some would visit the science corner to look at the weekly science challenge or make observations about our live bearers aquarium.

  20. I would allow students to read silently or work on enrichment activities! :)

  21. Hey there!

    I teach students with special needs, so it greatly depends on each student. Some students I will give practice work/file folder tasks, some have homework to work on, while others I may give them a sensory box (with moon sand, fidget toys, etc..). :)

  22. Our school is big on encouraging reading, so when students are finished they are to read. There are times when I would like to give them a second option. I don't want reading to be a chore, they need to discover the joy of it.

  23. My early finishers have a list of choices they can pick. I make sure there are task cards at each table's supply caddy, so a lot of my kids choose to work on task cards if they finish early.

  24. I will usually allow them to read since they don't have a designated time to read their library books in my class.

  25. My students usually work on unfinished assignments, read a book, or help me (ie: pick up supplies, pass out papers, etc). I'm looking for new ideas this year though and this pack would be great!

  26. For my early finishers, I use Shelley Gary's early finisher activities. Student can either write it, draw it, journal it, read it, and solve it activities

  27. They work on a center activity.
