27 Ideas For Students That Finish Their Work Early -

27 Ideas For Students That Finish Their Work Early - | English Language Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
How to respond when students finish their work early is a classic teacher challenge.

Most of it boils down to lesson design–creating learning opportunities where students are naturally funneled toward extending, improving, and sharing their work so that ‘stopping points’ are more of a matter of scheduling than learning itself.

The following infographic via Mia MacMeekin provides some ideas for how to handle early finishers in the classroom. We almost titled this purely for elementary students because of ideas like manipulatives, naps, and music, but any of those shown below can be slightly adapted for almost any student grades K-12.
