We start our state testing in a couple of weeks, and I am looking for some fun reading/writing activities to do in the afternoons after we are finished with our testing for the day.

Challenge higher student

I have a meeting coming up with a parent who is asking for more challenging work for her daughter. This student is reading above grade level and grasps reading and math concepts very quickly.

Thank you

This is for students entering 1st grade.
Your schedule looks great. Now I have a good idea of the activities and materials I need to look for.

thanks again

for all the suggestions.

He is a super smart student, but the work produced does not reflect this. I think there may be times when he might be bored like PP said, but since we are a testing year,...

I like the idea of just rewarding positive behaviors and ignoring others. So simple!! (I hope) I could try this with a few others in my room too.

I just don't want him to get hung up and...

thanks for the replies. I like your ideas, and will definitely try to work on one goal at a time.

I agree. If we differentiate in the classroom during a regular day, then why don't we differentiate the tests too? Otherwise why bother differentiating every day??
