The students that come work with me are below grade level and work in small groups to improve as much as they can!
These students are working towards becoming an advocate for their needs and measuring their progress and goals.
Every student brings something unique and interesting. Many resort to humor to make up for their academics.
When building relationships with the students, you learn a lot about their troubles at home or in class, and to see how much humor they still have in life is amazing.
These materials will make a difference because students will be able to use a device to interact with their learning. They see an immediate red or green response and volume can be on or off.
I purchased one of these to use with a student, and he has been so engaged when he gets to use his pen.
He knows he made an error when it turns red and we get to discuss it together and practice it. When it is green, he gets an immediate celebration.
For students who are already struggling, completing paper work gets boring and feels like no progress is being made. The colors really help engage and motivate.
In addition to this. I was working with a student using one box of these, and I was quickly able to identify where his reading problem was. He didn't even realize that he was being assessed in the process. I was able to record how many errors were made in different areas to determine where he is at.
This is a great, versatile tool to use with everyday curriculum. It can be used when a student needs a break from paper work or as a practice activity while assessing students individually in the group.
