Teachers know that not all students are self-starters when it comes to working in a less-than-structured environment such as centers or small groups, so as a teacher I have found that an accountability component is a must have!
Structured answer documents provide students with an organized format that may not come naturally for some. Students also understand that this document provides the teacher with a visual representation of the amount of work/effort that was occurring during work time. I always tell my students, "Put your brain on paper, and let me 'see' your thinking.
Student answer documents also provide the authentic student work often needed for student portfolios, referral conferences, IEP records, parent/teacher conferences, etc.
This resource is also formatted to be assessment friendly.
As teachers, we ALL know you can NEVER have enough activities that provide authentic, meaningful practice for those kids who zip through every task you give them and do well in spite of their speed! This type of resource is a great way to keep them engaged in the learning and extinguish behavior issues.
These days, you never know when routines will be interrupted for fire drills, tornado drills, special assemblies, class pictures- etc. The list goes on and on. As a teacher, I find that these kinds of activities are not only wonderful activities for centers, they also help "re-engage" students and provide meaningful practice with a fun twist when routines are thrown out the window! Happy Teaching!
