"Finished, teacher!" What to do with fast finishers in the Young Learner classroom

Watch a recording of this webinar with Laura McWilliams, looking at how to manage classes where students finish activities at different speeds.

About the webinar

We all know how challenging it can be when one or two learners have raced through your carefully planned activity at top speed and yell out that they’ve finished while the rest of the class are still only on question 4!

In this webinar, Laura McWilliams considers and discusses how to take a principled approach that manages this common classroom situation for the benefit of all learners – those who have finished, as well as those still working – and then looks at a variety of practical strategies for different life stages. The session includes a range of ideas they can implement with their own classes.

Recorded on 7 April 2022
