Finding time to individualize

Today we are featuring a great tip from the idea-filled website First Grade Frenzy. This teacher uses a cute visual to hold questions and bookmark time in the future with the student in need. When learners need help or want her attention, she asks the kids to go over to the “Later Gator” board, write their name and question on a sticky note, and post it on the sign.

Then, during DEAR time, at the end of the day, and during snack, she finds students who have posted on the board and works with them on the questions they have or the concerns they want to discuss.
What a simple and brilliant way to carve out time to work with individual students and to meet diverse needs!
