Reflection: Flexibility Surface Area and Volume Centers -5 Days of Enrichment and/or Remediation - Section 1: Launch

As I have said before - we have had an abnormal amount of snow/ice days this year, coupled with multiple early releases and delays on account of the weather.  Not wanting to nix the idea of enrichment and remediation altogether, I had to get creative :)  At my school we have what is called a "focus time," which is a 45 minute block of time in the morning that all students (correction - those students not pulled for interventions) will rotate through.  My team rotates our groups on a weekly basis, thus, I used these centers during focus time.  Since the kids are grouped using data, it worked out the almost all students needing the small group reteaching were in the same group - I only had to make a few adjustments!
