#### Education is not the learning the facts. It's rather the training of the mind to think.- Yes this is so true- especially in special education

#### Education is not the Learning of facts. It's rather the training of the mind to Think." Albert Einstein #quote

#### Albert Einstein (14 March 1879 â€“ 18 April 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics). he received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect". #AlbertEinstein

Cut a file folder into strips. The shorter the attention span, the smaller you will cut the strips. I cut this one into 3 parts. Students open 1 flap at a time and always begin at the top and work their way down. Students complete the work that they can see when a flap is open.

#### Assignments in small bites: Cut a file folder into flaps (the shorter the attention span, the smaller the flap). The student completes the work under each flap before moving onto the next. If the student needs movement or extra motivation, you can set up a system where he/she can come show you the completed work under a flap and then get a stamp!

#### Kendra & Dave- good idea! For kids who are easily distracted or overwhelmed by amount of work. Put assignments/responsibilities onto a paper in a file folder. Cut the file folder into thirds so that the student sees 2-3 tasks at one time. This is helpful for multi-step problems and organizational difficulties as well as difficulties with attention. Essential for students with NVLD or Processing Disorders as well as ADHD!

#### Cut a file folder into strips. The shorter the attention span, the smaller you will cut the strips. Students open 1 flap at a time and always begin at the top and work their way down. Students complete the work that they can see when a flap is open. ADHD Homework help!!

#### For students with short attention spans: Cut a file folder into strips. Students open 1 flap at a time and always begin at the top and work their way down. Creative and inexpensive way to help students stay focused!

Marble Run game made for elementary students. Could be used for classroom management or as a reward. Would be great to use when we talk about angles.

#### Fun Games For Kids Elementary, Marbles Games, Elementary Student, Stem Projects, Fun Badges Ideas, Elementary Art Games, Play Ideas, Activities For Elementary Kids, Classroom Management

#### Marble Run game made for elementary students. Preset this as a STEM project for homeschooled kiddos to make, at home or at co-op school. One pinner said, "could be used for classroom management or as a reward." How sad would it be if EVERY student didn't get to use this, only the "good" ones. Instead, integrate it into the science/engineering process curriculum in elementary school, to excite kids about the STEM/STEAM disciplines, and encourage kiddos to be 21st Century Learners!

Assign parents "top secret" homework the week before TEST. Their homework is to secretly send in a letter of encouragement to be given to their child before they start! Great idea! Have other teachers in the building write to students that you don't receive notes from their parents. Love this!
