How can I use these Early Finisher Math Task Cards in my classroom?
In my classroom, students love using these early finisher cards after they have completed their other math tasks for the day. They are designed to be extensions of learning, and while some can be completed with ease, others will take a significant amount of time.
I have chosen not to number my cards because for some students, I hand select a card for them rather than have them go in order. Students write the title of the card in a math journal (or a blank piece of paper) and then record their answers. For this option, I print the cards on cardstock and laminate them. The can be completed on student tablets or computers and assigned via Google Classroom!

What are teachers saying about these Early Finisher Math Task Cards?
“My students loved using this as early finishers. We assigned this as an ongoing project where they had to complete 5 cards but could complete more. Kids were super excited to complete more than 5 cards. Will use year after year!” – Sandra S.
“These task cards were great for my students that always finished early! They were able to do these without having to ask me “what do I do now”. They were great and saved me so much time answering the same question over and over!” – Melinda L.
“These are a great resource for early finishers to help them stay engaged and motivated. My students love using these and are able to do them independently when they finish an assignment. These were especially useful for my gifted students, who usually finish assignments sooner than others. They were able to get to work right away and enjoyed discussing the tasks together. ” – Teaching with Sprinkles on Top
