    This year I will be teaching a 3rd grade math group that has a huge range of abilities. I feel very comfortable with reteaching and helping struggling students, but I am always at a loss for what to do with the two or three kids that understand everything before I even teach it. I would love to find something engaging and productive for them to do while I work with the other students. Does anyone have any resources or ideas about this?

    I always hesitate to move them on to new concepts and instead find something more challenging for them to do with the current concepts. For example, last year I had three students who mastered multiplication facts so I had them create power point presentations of multiplication word problems that they wrote.
