Educational Time Fillers

It's my last Sunday of summer. My first day with my students is tomorrow. 3-6 Free Resources is hosting a great Educational Time Filler linky that's perfect for starting the year.  Here are some of my fun but worthwhile time fillers.



Line Up

See how quickly your class can get lined up in ABC order by first names. Then try last names.

See how quickly your class can get lined up in birthday order.

See how quickly your class can get lined up by height either tallest to shortest or shortest to tallest.

Let them line up  in a designated pattern:  ABAB    AABAAB

The possiblilities or endless with  this and it's quick and easy.


I've already shared about my Zoom Around the Room game. But it's worth sharing again.
Pairs of students race to call off a correct answer to a designated category to be able to move around the room.  I keep a copy of this handy on my desk and sub tub! Read more about this activity {HERE}

  2. I love these ideas! I hope I can remember them when I need to fill time on the fly.
