Get your students motivated! As a teacher, you know how essential student buy-in is to instructional effectiveness: It is not enough to merely have students participate in the classroom activities you select--you need to get them to want to participate. In "Fun-tastic Activities for Differentiating Comprehension Instruction, Grades 2-6", you will discover unique and engaging instructional strategies that will motivate all of your students! By using Literacy Bins--multi-unit compartments containing thematic, content-aligned activities--you can meet multiple classroom objectives while sparking your students' curiosity and sustaining their interest. Through the blending of teacher-led small-group instruction, independent student adventure, and the exploration of game-based literacy activities, you will find ways to strengthen your reading instruction while promoting autonomous student learning. Fun-tastic activities can also help students develop multiple avenues of learning and continue to stretch their skills in reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing, and critical thinking.
