quickfire activities


Okay, I’m putting out a question to all of you:  Do you have any quick, no prep activities to do that can be done in as little as 5 to 10 mins and involve letters or numbers?

I schedule my circle/morning message time for right before snack.  I usually give us about 20 mins to do what we need to do.  Some days we take all 20 mins – others we don’t.  I would like some easy activities to do with my class on those days where we finish early and have 5 to 10 mins to spare before leaving the room for snack.  It would be great if these activities could involve letters or numbers – or some other educational purpose.

I welcome any and all ideas – I can always tweak them to make them my own!  Please leave a comment and let me know what you do in your class when you only have a few minutes and need to keep the kids busy !  Thanks!  🙂

About deepbluetide

I am a pre-kindergarten teacher at a private christian school. I work mornings with 4 year olds (most of whom enter my class in July still being 3 - they're babies!) and then in the afternoon work "daycare" - which is basically my own class combined with 5 year old children. One things for sure - it's never dull! I had no idea growing up I would be teaching pre-k today! It took me totally off guard - but in the end I wouldn't change a thing! I have worked with children whose age range is 6 weeks through 12 years. In the end I have decided that my current age group is my favorite! And in case you were wondering - all names mentioned are changed to protect the identities of those involved. Enjoy!
