Teaching boys is tough! Why not use things that get their attention? I have created cute cards to be used during a small group center to help teach shades of meaning, adjectives, and word prediction(similar to maze). As a special education teacher, I am all about differentiation. We all know how different children finish activities at different paces. For adjectives, I have created a fill in the blank sheet for the upper group and a word circle for lower group. For shades of meaning, after the children sort the cards they pick the fill in sheet based on what group they are in. For the high group 8, middle group 6, and lower group 4. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
