This story is one in a bundle of 3. There are a variety of activities including a word search for those students that are quick to finish their work...you know the one's! Templates are provided that can be used as an anchor chart--Success criteria is provided that can be used as a rubrics. This booklet can be easily modified for most grades.
You will notice little ninjas at the corner of my worksheets. When a page has been completed, you can encourage the child to colour in the ninja at the bottom left of each page. (Show them that this task should only take about 1 minute-It's small for a reason). This way, when you see they have coloured in the ninja, you can ask them questions about the page. You will not have to guess what work has been completed! (Only you will be able to know if the ninjas are distracting. If it is, you can cover it up or cut off the corner and save it for later).
In my "ninja" class, and in real life, ninjas are always on a mission! This booklet is no different!
Guide the children to greatness by giving them "missions" (as opposed to an assignment). Inside, you will find at least 18 missions for them to complete. Some may want/need a time limit per page in order to complete each mission to their best ability! Some children may need a longer time limit. That's ok. Some ninjas do too!
*Please tell me how this works for you and what extensions or changes you have made to it.
