Creating an Early Finishers Tub was the best thing I have ever done for my students (and myself). Now when students finish early, there are activities ready to go for them and peace can be maintained while others are still working. In the set, there is a guide as to how I set my tub up and introductions for the activities. I keep about a dozen containers and folders in my tub for each month. That is enough for half of my class (but some are partner activities too). These are activities that can be done over and over, interdependently or with a partner, and quietly. Most importantly, learning has continued after they have finished their current assignments.
This set includes:
ABC Cards (build sight words, work on ABC order, letter identification)
Beginning sound pictures
CVC pictures and words
Number cards to 30
Ten frames, cubes, time to the hour
Dice games to 50 and 100
Real vs. Nonsense Words
*I plan on adding these for each month so let me know if you have any requests. Thanks!!
