Hi everyone, I would like some advice for a problem that I am having. My grade switches classes for IWT time. (Independent Work Time) It so happens that my class receives all the 1's, and behavior problems from the grade. These children are all in serious risk of being retained in the third grade due to poor progress in math and reading. During IWT time, we primarily focus on reading and comprehension strategies. My CT gives the kids worksheets and it always seems to be the same rountine everyday. Read, answer, the questions, etc. I would really like to incorporate some different activites into the classroom to boost reading and comprehension. Ideally, I want to get away from worksheets. These kids are not benefiting from just answering a couple of questions from a worksheet. Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can do during this time to help these kids out? I would like to do some learning centers or things of that nature. Any ideas?
