Differentiation

Small Group Instruction

Small group instruction is a great way to differentiate the curriculum. Providing support tailored to students' specific needs can help deepen their understanding and allow them to master the learning objectives (Dyer, 2023). Resources that are helpful for me when I support students in small groups are whiteboards, dry-erase markers, sound chip manipulatives, and alphabet sound cards. These tools make it possible for my students to interact with their learning tasks which in turn play a huge part in strengthening their reading foundational skills.

Boom Cards

Boom Cards are digital task cards that can be used as a literacy center. These digital task cards are interactive. When students get an answer right or wrong, they get instant feedback and can try again immediately (Lynn, 2024). My students love Boom Cards because it feels like they’re playing a computer game. They interact with moveable pieces with fun sound effects. They are perfect in helping students practice phonics skills, reading, and sight words and close the learning gaps.

Presentation

Providing students will visual aids to refer to while learning is a great way to differentiate the curriculum. Teachers can present new ideas or learning concepts to students in different ways. In my class, I use digital tools like Screencastify and powerpoint to help me present important concepts that students are working on. Students can access these presentation through Google Classroom at any given time.

Library

Visiting a library provides many benefits for students. It not only gives students a safe, calm, and, focused environment for studying, but also enriches the academic experience by providing resources, fostering intellectual growth, and creating spaces for exploration and interaction (Lenoir Foundation, 2023). Besides using our classroom's library, my students also enjoy visiting our school's library once a week to check out books. This experience allows my students to expand their knowledge by applying their reading skills to decode books from various genres.

Raz-Kids

Raz-Kids is a digital library that offers developmentally appropriate books and quizzes to students to help them extend their reading skills (Learning A-Z, 2024). Through Raz-Kids, students can have books read to them, and read by themselves. This digital tool can record students' read-aloud and allows me to use it as a tool for tracking fluency. It is great for my independent students who need little help from me. My students can work at their own pace to advance to their next reading levels.

Story Jumper

Storyjumper is a website that allows students to write and create their own digital stories by adding text, characters, images, and backgrounds. This is a great enrichment tool for students to use to expand their reading and writing skills. My students enjoy this program because it is interactive and fun.

Fostering Collaboration

Google Classroom

Google Classroom is an online tool that allows teachers to assign work and provide links to resources for students. It can also be used as a collaboration tool that is open to all members of the classroom. Both the teacher and students can post announcements or questions on this platform.

Seesaw

Seesaw is a great platform that allows teachers to assign work to students digitally. Using Seesaw not only helps students demonstrate their knowledge in a variety of ways such as using photos, videos, drawings, and texts but it also opens ways for them to communicate and collaborate with their peers and teachers. According to Bell (2023), It empowers students to create, reflect, share, and collaborate with their teacher and other classmates.

Cultural Diversity

Family Engagement

Promoting cultural diversity is a great way to engage families to take part in our students' learning. With strong communication and trust in place, parents can provide unique insight to teachers, help students set and work toward goals, and support learning at home. For this reason, our school site has adopted Parent Square. It is a digital communication tool that helps establish transparency and trust with parents regardless of language or cultural differences.

Parent Workshop

At my school site, we often hold parent workshops to help parents gain new skills, tools, and resources to help their student(s) succeed in school. Its purpose is to educate, empower, and inspire families to take an active role in their children’s education while building a strong learning community.
