Work smarter, not harder! How, you ask, with all of the added demands and expectations of differentiation that the educational world is now placing upon teachers? In this article, I offer one simple solution to help educators work smarter with the time that they have: open-ended question asking. The open-ended question format is a natural answer for how to differentiate in the classroom! Instead of giving students the question all the time, give them the answer and have them become the teacher! I use this type of question in several ways. Sometimes it is a part of my launch for a workshop session, other times it is a part of the partner work that I expect my students to complete, and yet other times I use this type of question as an "exit" ticket for an informal formative assessment check.
You can also try and teach division just like you would teach the multiplication tables, through division worksheets. By teaching 5 times 2 is 10 and 5 times 3 is 15 you can reverse it and let your students learn by saying things like 10 divided by 5 is 2 and 15 divided by 5 is 3. Of course, this is not applicable to much large numbers when it comes to learning to divide by larger numbers, but it is a good start.
When your students are playing the typing game you have chosen, do spend some time monitoring them to make sure they are using correct typing techniques. Some of the typing games that are aimed at younger kids can be done with one or two fingers, without using the keyboard correctly. If the students are using the games this way, they might as well not be using them at all, because they are learning improper techniques while using the educational software.
