I have a very large gap between top students and struggling ones. Even with differentiation an modification often the high flyers are done with their independent work way before everyone else. This year each kid has their own device and this particular group thinks they should get free time on their chrome book where they try to find games not blacked by or tech administrator and I can't constantly watch what they are doing while helping struggling ones when with technology to help monitor (goguardian) I have tried coding programs and there was not much interest.

So my question is what does anyone do with early finishers that seems to work? I'm 15 years into teaching and it seems, especially nowadays, the kids that finished early aren't always interested in something challenging possibly more engaging

I have a list of items for them to choose from. I made a list on Go Guardian, so they were limited to what they could access. That freed me up to not have to monitor it constantly.
