Early Finishers for third grade can be used in multiple ways. Students will sharpen their thinking skills and they move from task to task at their own pace.
Finding meaningful work for all students is one of the biggest challenges teachers face. This assortment of creative and critical thinking tasks, created by Dazzle on a Dime, will keep those little hands, minds, and bodies busy in the short moments of time which occur regularly throughout the day or week.
~ over 65 math, science, social studies, language arts and thinking
~ for students of mixed abilities
~ A multitude of critical and creative thinking skills
~ Anchor Activities using Bloom's Taxonomy
~ Excellent resource for Gifted and Talented and other fast finishers
The assortment of activities offer differentiation and meet a variety of learning styles. As an anchor activity, the tasks are not related to a specific topic but spiral back through the curriculum and give a preview to up-coming standards. I created these tasks as a support for the classroom teachers who were having a difficult time challenging the gifted students I teach in a pull-out program. It is perhaps one of my favorite all time resources!
