Some students finish their work very early and might tend to disturb others who are still working. Keep these students busy with some fun activities. Here are a few ideas!

*** Have tangram or pattern blocks patterns available for their use.

*** Keep some fun activity worksheets available.

 - Analogies:  Red is to apple as _________________ is to banana.
 - Word search puzzles
*** Games....have some quick-play games available.

 - Matching games for varied skills
 - Math games
 - Language games

*** Thinkers!

 - Offer students a challenge question such as: Name as many items as you can that might be found in a kitchen. Read more about Thinkers in an August 8, 2014 post in this blog.

*** Classroom library

 - Have a variety of fun/interesting books available to read.
 - Challenge the students with a question of the day based on various books in your classroom library
 -Allow students to keep a personal book inside the desk to read during down-time.

Do some of  these ideas take some time to prepare? Yes, of course, but it is worth every minute if you are able to keep students occupied during work time.

Happy Teaching!
