How do I offer activities that appeal to a wide range of learner needs? For instance, do most people list a variety of activities to meet the needs of each level of student under “Math-by-Myself?” Continuing this example, would I have 3 activities for my below level students, 3 for my on level students, and 3 for my above level students?
First of all, let me apologize for the delayed response! Somehow I missed this question.
The link below leads you to an article by a fellow teacher with great ideas about pacing, changing activities, foundational activities and keeping a balance of new and review activities. Each point she makes will give you ideas about how to manage that in your classroom.
After you read through that piece, please feel free to post any questions you have–and I promise to get to them sooner.
