There are always a few students in the classroom who always finish all their work way before the other students and what do you have them do?
I have my students do challenge work. Basically it is a review of what we are learning in out classroom. It might have a slight twist to the skills.
For example, our sight words. I could have the students just practice their flash cards, however instead they can come to the challenge center and there they will find two sight word games to play. Sight Word Bingo or Stick Bang.
In math we have been learning about Base Ten Numbers and ten frames. During Calendar last month we compared Base ten blocks to dimes and pennies. So I created a challenge activity where they need to do some comparison.
Another new activity I have for my students is an I SPY the Mayflower with a syllable twist. They have to search the classroom for words the begin with the letters from the word Mayflower however the have to have one or two syllables.
I also have a Reading Challenge similar to the Daily Five layout.
I also include the qr codes for stories for the children to listen to and poems for them to read.
