Letter tracing: This is where you have a dotted line spelling out a word, with the picture next to the word, and the goal of the exercise is for students to practice writing while improving their phonetic skills. For instance, they might trace out the words for bat, ball, and basket. This is a really good, straightforward activity. Connect The Letter To The Correct Sound/Word: These are activities where you draw a line between a letter and the picture items that start with that letter. For instance, you had draw a line from the letter A to the word "Apple" and the letter L to the word "Lemon". This activity is good, but takes a lot of monitoring to make sure that students are correctly connecting the letters. It is best as a homework activity, where parents can help to make sure their children are correctly connecting the letters to the words.
The Department of Education Common Core State Standards for education was developed in 2010. These common core practices apply to English language arts and Mathematics. The standards represent a set of expectations for student knowledge needed to succeed in college and careers.Keyboarding is listed as a skill that students must acquire, manuscript handwriting is minimally addressed and cursive is excluded altogether. These major changes serve to increase the controversy over the roles of handwriting and keyboarding instruction in elementary schools. Cursive handwriting has long been a cornerstone of education yet the elimination of cursive handwriting has been based on assumptions including the assumption that keyboarding skills are superior to handwriting skills.
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.
