Hi, I teach at a very small school and have one fifth grader who is excelling at math. His classmate, however, is not. I have 3 grades, so divide my math hour into three 20-minute lesson segments. While I am not working directly with the 5th graders, they are working at independent math centers overseen by my aide. My lower student gets extensive help from the aide, while the higher student usually works on his own. What I am mainly looking for are meaningful enrichment activities, perhaps ones that he could work on with the aide so he doesn't get cheated out of instructional time he deserves despite the fact he "gets it." I've been reading up a little on GT and I don't want to give my student extra work or throw activity worksheets at him. What I have been reading about are things like independent studies and projects, but I just haven't found any specific ideas. I will also go ahead and admit that teaching 3 grades has made me lazy enough that I'm not looking to create a 4th curriculum for this kid (at least I'd rather not). He's not really at 6th grade level, just gets the 5th grade stuff really well. So does anyone have any ideas of quality 5th grade enrichment activities that are somewhere between copying a worksheet and creating a whole 'nother curriculum? I think independent study would be great, but how does one structure that? I don't even know where to start! Thanks!
