Looking for early finisher activities? Look no more! In any classroom, there are bound to be students who finish their assignments ahead of their peers. As an educator, it's essential to have a strategy to keep these early finishers engaged and challenged. One creative and effective way to achieve this is by having multiplication brochures readily available for your students. These brochures not only reinforce essential math skills but also encourage independent learning and creativity.
How to Use Multiplication Brochures for Early Finisher Activities:
Prepare materials and have them displayed in your classroom. We start by copying a class set of each brochure. Students love the eye-catching display and can't wait to get started! Prep once and you're done! We love getting parent volunteers to help or even have our students help!
- Option 1: If you want your students to progress through the brochures in a specific order, this tracker is for you! One design has students progress in number order starting at 2 and ending at 12. The other design is in the following order: 10, 5, 11, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12.
- Option 2: If you don't care which order your students complete the brochures, this option is for you! The "Color by Brochure" is simply a chart with all the brochures listed. As students finish a brochure, they color the matching space!
Teach expectations and procedures to your students. Since each brochure follows the same format, we suggest doing a fact family together, so they have examples to reference. You can even post the fact family you do together on the wall next to your display.
Watch your students never say, “I’m done, now what?” Look no more for early finisher activities!
Incorporating multiplication brochures into your classroom for early finisher activities not only reinforces essential math skills but also cultivates a positive and creative learning environment!
