    I teach 5/6th combo and have to switch with the other 6th grade teacher for 40 minutes a day during language arts. She takes the "lower" students and I have the "enrichment" group. I am looking for ideas in language arts enrichment projects or class activities. I have already done quite a few partner and group projects with literacy and fluency. Any ideas?

    Here are a few ideas:

    - Read a higher level book with the class
    - Have the students create a board game relating to an area you are studying
    - They could do a research project where they have to create a power point presentation in the end
    - They could give an oral presentation on something you're studying
    - Write a play based off of a book you read (perhaps come up with an alternate ending)
    - Do a poetry unit where they have to write their own poems

    I hope this gives you a few ideas.
