Have students write a collaborative poem or story using Twitter, IM, Edmodo or Facebook. This way, authors can contribute one word, one line, or several paragraphs.

WEBSITE WEDNESDAY: A Differentiated Kindergarten

Posted on June 21, 2012 in Differentiating Instruction, News

You all know how much I love a great teacher blog! A Differentiated Kindergarten caught my attention because it is colorful, full of lesson ideas, and frequently updated.

If you teach pre-K, K, or 1st, you will likely find ideas here for your diverse, inclusive classroom.

    This is exactly what I needed to see yesterday. I am fighting my 5 year old autistic daughter’s school to keep her out of the self-contained kindergarten class & include her in the general ed. kindergarten class. Thank you.

    What a nice surprise to see my blog featured here. I appreciate your kind words. I hope your readers know how much I’d love to have them visit. I’m not an expert in differentiated instruction by any means, but I keep plugging along, hoping to find a way to let all my students find success.

    I am going to be starting the Daily 5 this year and I know that “Read With/To Someone” maybe difficult for some students. So as a modification (in my head I am thinking of ideas) I am thinking of providing pictures of their family members, or characters in books they enjoy, stuffed animals, etc if students are uncomfortable doing such. Even if it is just temporary it might be a way to ease into it? I am also planning on having family members record stories on tape for them to listen for the other component of listening to the other person read. Hopefully this makes sense
