I have each class 1X a week (30-34 in class). I have some fast producers in gr
5-8. Please send me your ideas on what you do with them when they ask what's
next, when the rest of class needs an additional 3 weeds on the current
project? I need something SELF DIRECTED.
I have tried the following, but wasn't satisfied with these solutions:
1. Make a 2nd project with the same media as current project
2. Give each kid 1 on 1 instruction, as they finish
3. Introduce the next project to the class at the start of class when 1 or 2
are ready to move on
4. Introduce the next project repeatedly each week, while many are still on
the last project
5. Wait until 3/4 of the class has turned in the current project, and then
introduce the new project. (1/4 abandon current project, even with posted
class charts with projects listed and checked off)
6. Free choice Drawing with resource pictures
