    (differentiation lesson) **The Bandaid Lesson - great!** Lesson to explain differentiation to more "that isn't fair" after this demonstration! Good first day of school lesson, love!

    I absolutely love this lesson! The Bandaid Lesson explains differentiation to students on the first day of school. Each student comes up to the teacher and tells her a pretend "boo boo" that they have. They are allowed to be creative. However, the teacher places a band aid on every student in the same place. Once everyone has gone, the teacher explains that everyone is different and she will help everyone learn differently.

This is the M and M game: Buy M and Ms and pour them into a bowl. Each person scoops a cupful. In turn, reach into the cup and grab an M and M. Then answer a question based on whichever color is chosen. Snack on the M and M after question is answered.

This would be neat to do, and then make a book out of for students to continue to read throughout the school year.

School Memories - Some of these pages would be a great addition to the memory book I already put together for my students. I think some pages would would need to be done more than once a year.
