This is just what you need! An independent activity for students! I use the worksheets at the beginning of each week to teach the students how to work independently, but more importantly, to look through their book and discover the concepts that they will be learning over the week. When it comes time for you to teach the lessons, the students will have some prior knowledge and will feel a sense of accomplishment and responsibility for their own learning. The best part about this worksheet - The 15-30 minutes of quiet time you will get!!
