My perennial challenge is ‘what to do with the fast finishers?’ I’m finding this especially as a Casual Teacher. I find it hard when there isn’t a classroom routine that I’ve put in place or ongoing work that I’m aware they could work on. I’ve developed some Drawing Challenge cards – I find these useful for art lessons too as there’s always one kid that gets their art done in about 20 minutes.
Anyway feel free to print these off for your fast finishers. I think drawing should be a part of every week! These prompts could also be combined with literacy, getting them to expand upon their depiction with some written detail.
