Early finisher idea

brain Builders for early finishers

If you teach elementary you MUST get this 'early finishers' board via TPT. It provides you with a FULL YEAR'S WORTH of printable activities to display. It is differentiated by learning style so students can pick and choose meaningful activities to do when they get done with their work. It revolutionized my classroom this year! She has various grade levels available!!

When students ask a question no one in the class knows (including myself), they can put it up on the Google Board. Students can bring back a written answer to one of the questions of their choice each week for extra credit, or whatever incentive you choose. They get really excited when a question comes up that they can put on the board and find out the answer to later...

*52* Task Cards for Early Finishers! Rather than have your students work on "busy work," engage them with these Early Finisher task cards. With many different types of tasks that cover Bloom's and tap into the different learning styles of children, these task cards will provide you with weeks worth of answers to the question "I'm done. What do I do?" All you need to do is print the task cards and sent your students off to work and have fun...No other supplies necessary!

Early Finisher activities

The Early Finisher Board consists of seven sections: Read It, Write It, Solve It, Make It, Do It, Draw It and Journal It. Each section consists of a fun activity that students can take to their desk and complete.

Here's a number version of a Boggle board (Noggle!). Includes students recording sheet. This would be a fun early finish board.
