Early Finishers - 4th Grade: This fourth grade resource offers a multitude of Thinking Tasks for Early Finishers. Each task can be cut and pasted into a spiral notebook or journal and used to challenge your fast finishers during those idle moments of time throughout the year. They might also be used a few at a time like a choice board or solved like task cards or morning work. The uses are limitless. Students can skip from task to task and even revisit tasks to generate more ideas.
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.
These activities offer choice for differentiation and meet a variety of learning styles. Tasks include brain teasers, anchor activities, thought provoking problems, brainstorming activities and much more. All levels of Bloom's Taxonomy are considered, making these creative and critical thinking tasks very engaging for your gifted and talented students. As anchor activities, the tasks are not related to specific topics but spiral back through the curriculum and offer a sneak peak to up-coming standards. My collection of Early Finishers includes 4 grade level versions and 4 subject area versions. They are perhaps my all-time favorite products!
