Early finisher activities for the busy teacher
“15 Minute Fillers” is an invaluable multi-purpose resource book containing quick ideas for relief and general classroom teachers. The activities are suited to students of middle and upper primary levels, integrating high-interest content across key learning areas such as English, Mathematics, Science, Society and Environment, the Arts and Technology. Detailed teachers’ notes and ideas are included, many with accompanying worksheets. Little preparation is necessary to implement the activities. The book can be used in many ways:
- As a ready resource of activities for relief teachers
- As fast finisher or learning centre activities
- As rainy day or spare time activities for the classroom teacher
- As quick, fun, get-to-know-you activities for the beginning of the year
- As a change of pace to a busy day
The book is not written to be used in any particular order, but rather as a “lucky dip” of ideas, sure to keep the entire class busy and on task in an enjoyable way. They will want to play some of the games again and again.
