I have mostly low to medium level students (mostly fours, a couple of threes, a couple of fives). I have a couple who I think get bored because they are so much above the others in different areas. One can identify all the letters, upper and lowercase, write her name, count (with objects or without) up to 60, knows all her shapes, etc. Dad and Mom have worked with her a lot on these skills. She also loves to manipulate small objects and is advanced in doing harder puzzles. She is a little behind socially, but has made good improvements since the beginning of the year. I know she gets bored because we are still working on identifying letters and numbers in circle and small groups. Another is way ahead socially. She engages in extended (over a few days) pretend play. She is always the "leader" in deciding play themes. She sometimes involves the other children in games with rules (Duck Duck Goose, Red Rover) and gets frustrated when the other children don't pay attention to the rules. I know I will get the answer I am looking for if I call on her when asking a question that asks for higher thinking skills. While she's not as advanced in knowing numbers, letters, shapes, etc., she's on the high end of average. What would these students next steps be? I had thought about pairing them for small groups, but they don't usually interact because their personalities are different. How do I meet their needs and challenge them when they are so far ahead of the rest of my kids?
