I give students this "Criteria for Success" to remind them of the behavioral expectations they need to show and the materials they need to bring in order to be successful while on the computers. "Having materials ready" includes having a white board and a dry erase marker.

Digital Content Whiteboard Support

Students use their dry erase markers and white boards to jot down notes and work though problems while they work online. This simple strategy supports students in actually working through problems that they may otherwise try to solve in their heads. It also helps students stay engaged on computers for longer periods of time.

Strategy Explanation
 
 
This is a screencast I made to further explain this strategy. When my students started using the online math curriculum (Dreambox) early in the year, they were taught to calculate mentally. While this is a great end goal for my students, oftentimes giving them a whiteboard to work their problems out and show their work is just the scaffold they need to feel more successful.

Routines and Procedures
Student Scouts/Narrators

I ask Student Scouts to identify peers who demonstrate the three class standards/rules (showing respect, solving problems, and making good decisions) to reinforce the idea that good behavior is rewarded both intrinsically and extrinsically. Student Scouts identify their peers who are showing these standards at various pausing points throughout the lesson and give out Literacy Awards. Pausing points are planned purposefully and serve as opportunities for students to practice monitoring and assessing their own behavior.

 
Routines and Procedures
Heads Together

In the Heads Together strategy, my students huddle in pre-determined teams at the beginning or end of a lesson to discuss a question, give each other advice, or decide on a response collaboratively. I use this quick strategy to give my students consistent opportunities to engage in productive group work throughout each class period.

 
Collaborative Student Groups
Buddy Reading

Buddy Reading is a research-based fluency strategy I use with readers who lack fluency. In this strategy, my students read aloud to each other. More fluent readers can be paired with less fluent readers, or students who read at the same level can be paired to together. Buddy Reading can be used with any book since students can take turns reading by sentence, paragraph, page, or chapter.
