Are you looking for fillers to review your year that kids can do independently and leave you time to complete all those end of year closing tasks?
Here is a tip:
Top Ten lists (from www.patpavelka.com)
Step 1: Have kids write a list of ten things - you provide the topic.
Step 2: Then after they have generated a list give them a list of activities to do with the list:
draw a picture, write a description using adjectives, use in a sentence, put in ABC order, catergorize the words, write as questions, the list of possibilities are endless
Today, I had about 30 minutes of math time to fill and I pulled this out. We are studying length (shorter and longer). I wrote on the board Top Ten Things that are longer than a pencil. Then draw them, put in ABC order, and use in a sentence. I handed out an 18x24 construction paper and let them go. I got some really interesting ideas, like cars, whales, shoes, bookcases, schoolboxes. They were challenging each other to try to think of things that others didn't already have.
