PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

*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?"

Early Finisher Task Card Bundle! A bundle of three different early finisher task cards (INCLUDING THESE) for a discounted price! (Do not buy separately if you purchase the bundle.)

All you need to do is print the task cards and sent your students off to work and have fun...No other supplies necessary!

Great prompts---my kids liked these! I liked them because they had to spend more than five minutes working on them! Not like other prompts that the kids finish in 2 minutes.

Great product. I have it laminated and put in a manila pocket that is stapled to the wall. Student's love not knowing which task card they will get when they open up that pocket.

Product Questions & Answers

On  October 3, 2012,  Buyer asked:
Hello,

I already own one license of this product, but want to purchase more. I'm just not sure how many at this time. I mentor teachers and want to download your cards on an "as needed" basis. I don't see a link to buy multiple licenses. How would I go about doing that?

Thank you,
Alison Neill

What grade level are these task cards more geared toward? I teach 6th grade and am looking for some higher-level tasks. Thank you.

On  September 16, 2012Teaching With a Mountain View answered:
In my opinion, they are very open-ended prompts. I use them with my 4th and 5th grade Talented and Gifted students when they are in the general ed room and finish assignments early, and they really enjoy them. I always look at their responses and then ask them to expand on it in one way or another. Hope that helps!
