I have a few high readers this year who are so sweet and love school so much that they are just going with the flow---I reach their level at guided groups, but haven't modified their homework. I've tried modifying homework in years past---but I feel like my high students get neglected. With our new scheduling this year, I feel like I don't have enough time to plan for daily instruction--let alone planning to reach my high achievers. I talked to a FABULOUS teacher in my building, and she showed me her tic-tac-toe board for spelling. I've seen several spelling tic-tac-toe boards through the past few years, but I haven't seen one for reading. So I went back to her again today, and she gave me some task cards to look through (though they were 5th grade)--and I started thinking about what we're doing in our Treasures series so that my students can have "similar" homework. I'm sending home their library books/baggy books/reading book--whatever book I can get students interested in reading---and I'm sending this home with my advanced readers. I have not tried the tic-tac-toe boards before so I hope this works. Have any of you used them? Do they work for you?
