This year I have a student who is far and above all the rest of my students in this area. He is literally finished with anything I give him in 5 minutes. I teach a lesson, practice with the students, assign the task and BAM, he is done!! Little Sally doesn't even have her name on the paper and he is finished! His "To Do Folder" is always empty, and no worksheet can hold him for more than a minute. I have an iPad and computers, but I am not sure what to put on there for him.
So what I need to organize in my class is a Math Workshop, Math Tubs, something to meet his needs and all my other little guys. I feel overwhelmed and I just don't know where to begin. This is what I need from you. What do you do in your class?? What resources should I check out first? Books, websites, links to great Posts. I know Debbie Diller has a book out and I love her, but it is sooo pricey! Is it worth it??
I would love to hear all of your ideas and who or what I should google to help me get started. My math time is definitely in need of a Makeover!!
