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 students, keeping them actively engaged as they practise a range of skills.

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

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 • as revision for a particular skill

• as meaningful ‘between-tasks’ activities.

ew i ev Pr

Teac he r

• for homework assignments

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:

© R. I . C.Publ i cat i ons •f orr evi ew pur posesonl y• Working with numbers:

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

Critical thinking:

w ww

m . u

. te

Following directions:

o c . che e r o t r s super

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

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.

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

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

Teac he r

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 students how you want them to use the resource

ew i ev Pr

The copies need to be organised and located so that students can access them directly without disturbing other students 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 student’s page against this will immediately highlight any errors. Offering a resource which encourages students to take control gives them the opportunity to develop greater independence. The entertaining nature of the activities will motivate students 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.

© R. I . C.Publ i cat i ons •f orr evi ew pur posesonl y•

Can the student choose which activity to do? Must he or she take one from each section in turn? Is the teacher going to determine specific activities?

w ww

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

. te

m . u

Is each task to be completed individually? Can students work in pairs or small groups?

o c . che e r o t r s super

Allocate a file or tray for students to return their completed sheets. Each book contains an individual student record sheet.

Provide a file containing a sheet for each student, listed in alphabetical order. As a student completes an activity, he or she can cross off its page number on the record sheet.

Provide a file for students to store the worksheets after they have been checked by the teacher.
