Welcome to Curbing the Chaos’ Quick and Easy Boredom Busters.
As a teacher, you realize how difficult it can be to keep students engaged in learning. Let’s face it, there is a lot of competition for childrens’ attention in today’s fast-paced high-tech world. So what do we as educators do? We compete. We step up our game and provide students with entertaining collaborative lessons that hold their attention and instill the knowledge they need to make the necessary learning gains.
The activities in this book are quick and easy to conduct and require very little prep time. They may be used in any subject area and in conjunction with KWL organizers, review materials and classroom style assessments. The activities compliment regular teacher-led lessons to meet Common Core as well as other state set standards.
Benefits of interactive lessons, such as the ones in this book, reach beyond academics. These activities reinforce positive behavior and social communication skills, both of which are vital for students of all ages.
It is our hope that this book will provide you and your students with fun interactive learning activities.
