    early finishers

    In my classroom early finishers are invited to help themselves to a variety of "Just for Fun" sheets that are located in an accordian style folder next to the bin that finished work goes in. The sheet always contain a skill (ie: dot to dot counting, coloring sheets that require reading color words or directions...)
    One of my class' favorites to do as a "Just for Fun" activity as well as a group or class activity is sequencing with comic strips. I cut out and laminate Sunday comics ranging from simple pictures for non-readers to those with dialogue fo r advanced readers, place them in envelopes and give them to the children to put back together in the proper order.
    The biggest benefit to activities such as these is that there is no grading involved! Extra activities for the children doesn't have to mean extra paper work for you.
