Fast Finisher Activities

color by number for fast finishers

You might need a fast finisher activity for all kinds of reasons. Sometimes, students finish a lab quickly, and you need to give them something to do that is meaningful but quiet. These color-by-number worksheets are great as an end of year review.

It’s almost time for standardized testing! Each student will need a different amount of time to complete their test. Every year, we all hear, “I finished! Now what do I do?” at least once! What is the best way to handle a fast finisher?

If a student finishes early, we don’t want them to feel like they are being punished by being forced to sit quietly, do nothing, or stare at the classroom walls! 

It is important to be prepared for fast finishers on test day! Having an activity, or several, planned is a great way to ensure fast finishers stay quiet so their classmates can finish their tests in a calm environment.  See all My Fast Finsher Resources Here

What is the Best Way to Handle Fast Finishers?

The most common solution teachers have for fast finishers is telling students they can read once they are done with their test. This is the perfect opportunity to give students a fun activity that is still educational!
