These January Early Finisher Tubs allow your students who finish early to continue with learning activities, while others finish their work. Creating these tubs is the best thing I have ever done for my students (and myself).
In the set, I include a guide as to how I set my tub up and introductions for the activities. I keep about a dozen containers and folders in my tub for each month. That is enough for half of my class (but some are partner activities, too). These are activities that can be done over and over, interdependently or with a partner, and quietly. Most important, learning continued after they finish their current assignments.
This set includes a snowman/snowflake/mitten theme with the following activities:
- ABC Cards (build sight words, work on ABC order, letter identification)
- Beginning sounds covering letters Tt, Bb, Ss, Mm
- CVC pictures and words
- Sight Words
- Number cards to 20
- Ten frames to 20
- Dice games to 50 and 100
- Number puzzles to 12
