      Sunny Days in Second Grade: Brain Builders...early finishers can study task cards and earn Brain Beads for answering correctly

      Brain Builders Club - bulletin board with task cards for early finishers. Students choose a set of cards to study. Then they take a test and if 100% correct, they earn a Brain Bead.

      I love this because it targets "early finishers" which is a big issue....Brain Builders Club - bulletin board with task cards for early finishers. Students choose a set of cards to study. Then they take a test and if 100% correct, they earn a Brain Bead.

      Great for early finishers-for a wide range of abilities in my room. Besides a wide range of abilities, I have students who finish things at very different times. One of the ways I've found to be sure that the fast finishers are using their extra time wisely (boy, that's teacher-talk, huh?) is through this little genius idea - The Brain Builders Club.

One of the ways I've found to be sure that the fast finishers are using their extra time wisely (boy, that's teacher-talk, huh?) is through this little genius idea - The Brain Builders Club. One bulletin board in my room is dedicated to holding task cards on many different subjects. Some I've found through internet searches and some I created myself. Each set of 30 cards has the answers on the back to make them self-checking. If a student has extra time, they can choose a set of cards to study. Once they feel confident enough, a classmate who is also finished can give them the Brain Builders Test. Then the students check it together. If the student gets all of the questions correct they earn a Brain Bead! My cabinet doors are covered with these command hooks. Each student's number is on one of the tags from the hook and hanging from it is a ball-chain keychain. Each time the student earns a Brain Bead I attach it for them. Each five beads earns

    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!!

    *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!

    Good idea for an early-finisher activity

    ... and this doesn't have to be for students that finish early. :^)

    Free download for your Friday Folders to give parents a weekly report of their child!

    The interactive morning! Write on wipe off activities for morning work or early finishers!

    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...

    Today's blog post shows my latest bulletin board and the resource I created for my fast finishers and top math kids! I am super excited for them to try these higher level problem solving activities this week!

    Shared Journals, must do this for "fast finishers"

    On the first day of school, ask students what they would like to see in their lessons every day. It's great to have student input in your planning!
