Busy bag ideas. My favorites: 1. Number magnets with fishing rods 2. Hammer and stickers: Let child put the stickers on a pillow or another soft surface and practice hitting the stickers. 8. Shape Collage Bag: Multicolored paper shapes and a gluestick
Differentiate homework & give students choice... Students choose when to do deliberate practice in math 20 min. [review (meet expectations) or take on a challenge (exceed expectations), & in literacy [write for 60 min./week & read for 60 min./week.] Logging what they have done & showing their progress to the teacher throughout the week is mandatory.
