Cut a file folder into strips. The shorter the attention span, the smaller you will cut the strips. This one is cut 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. This is brilliant!
Friday Journals—kids write a note on Friday to their parents telling what they learned that week. The parents write a short response back to their child, and the child brings the notebook back Monday. Each parent response earns a sticker for the cover. Love it—a great way to practice letter writing, and to get parents involved. Helps the children ingrain what has been taught into their memory too.
