Teacher notes Early finishers: Independent activities to reinforce basic skills is a series of books containing a range of high-interest, creative and challenging activities to satisfy the demands of the early finisher. All activities relate to the primary school curriculum in English, mathematics and art, and can be completed independently of the teacher. The activities include a variety of puzzles and brainteasers to motivate pupils, keeping them actively engaged as they practise a range of skills.

• for homework assignments • as revision for a particular skill

Sa m

• as meaningful ‘between-tasks’ activities.

pl e

While the main target audience for the books is the early finisher, the activities can also be used: • in planning whole-class or group activities

Each book in the series is divided into six sections. Activities have been placed in the sections which best fit their main focus. Examples of activities in each section are: Looking at words:

in g

making new words from the letters in a given word or phrase; unscrambling words; wordsearch and crossword puzzles to develop vocabulary; identifying anagrams, similes and metaphors, synonyms and antonyms Working with numbers:

practising number operations with dot-to-dot, colour by numbers, mazes and pathways; determining place value by making and expanding numbers Critical thinking:

ew

recognising the odd-one-out; determining correct categories; identifying the main idea; sorting; using clues to solve problems Following directions:

Vi

locating routes and places on a map; creating pictures by plotting coordinates; following steps to draw pictures; decoding messages Looking at pictures:

finding matching pairs; completing symmetrical pictures; memorising features of a picture; copying a picture Getting creative: suggesting different uses for everyday objects; designing crests, CD covers, items of clothing; creating new products; writing and illustrating cartoon strips and different types of poetry.

Teacher notes Using the resource effectively

Answers

To create a simple, structured environment in which the class continues to run smoothly, some preparation by the teacher is required.

The answers are given at the back of the book. In many cases where the tasks are open-ended, checking by the teacher is required.

Offering a resource which encourages pupils to take control gives them the opportunity to develop greater independence. The entertaining nature of the activities will motivate pupils to complete their set work so that they have time for another activity, leaving the teacher free to allocate his or her time most effectively.

Sa m

The copies need to be organised and located so that pupils can access them directly without disturbing other pupils or the teacher, who may be involved with a separate group.

Some activities, such as the ‘Colour by numbers’ are also listed as ‘Teacher check’. In these cases it is easier to have a completed page coloured correctly. Checking a pupil’s page against this will immediately highlight any errors.

pl e

It will be necessary to anticipate the number of copies of each activity that may be required each week or given time period.

Rather than housing copies of all sections in one file, it may be appropriate to separate them and locate them in different areas of the classroom.

Take time to explain to the pupils how you want them to use the resource.

in g

Can the pupil choose which activity to do? Must he or she take one from each section in turn? Is the teacher going to determine specific activities? Is each task to be completed individually? Can pupils work in pairs or small groups?

ew

Are pupils allowed access to the answer pages? Can they mark each other’s work? Recording

Allocate a file or tray for pupils to return their completed sheets.

Vi

Each book contains an individual pupil record sheet. Provide a file containing a sheet for each pupil, listed in alphabetical order. As a pupil completes an activity, he or she can cross off its page number on the record sheet. Provide a file for pupils to store the worksheets after they have been checked by the teacher.
