"I'm finished" activities

Does any one have any cool ideas/worksheets to give kids when they are done with everything? I know they can always read or write, but I feel like I need a bit of variety too. Thanks.

Books for that

I know they have some books that are just for that.

One is called "I'm through, now what do I do!"

I went through a bunch of books like that and found math, LA, Science, Socual Studies worksheet that are self explanitory.

Then I put a cover on them called "Brain Shakers"

I give them to the kids to keep in their desks so they have something to do when they are finished early.

Yeah, I agree....reading is great, but if they are always finishing early and ALWAYS reading, then it looses some of it's enjoyment.

Good luck.

There are books called "Take it to your seat centers" for reading, writing and math. You laminate them, glue them to folders and they are little centers kids do at their seats. They're awesome!

I have boxes leveled by reading groups and have appropriate books, file folder games, manipulatives. Depending on your age group you can make some really quick ones. I have name plates (3 on each side) and put a vis a vis in the baggie and staple it on the back for handwriting practice. Number of stickers in a group and number cards to match. Neat stickers that they have to match for visual discrimination. Capital Letters and they have to match the lowercase letters to "their partner." Word family sorts etc. The take it to your seat books are awesome because they are already colored!!!

We are also keeping our consumable Saxon decodable readers at our desk for fluency practice. Good luck!
