Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Life is a Cycle - Section 2: Activity


With this activity there will be many students who come in with many different abilities. To accommodate for the students many diverse entry points I have one set of pictures that have the numbers carefully written in the corner for the students who need help placing them in order. Then I have one set of words which have the same carefully drawn numbers. This way my lower performing students know to match the numbers on the word strips to the numbers on the pictures they have placed in order.

My middle students I may have the pictures blank, but I will have numbers on the words. In this way they will recall the story pictorially but will have assistance with getting the words right. 

My high group have no numerical assistance whatsoever. They have to recall the order of the pictures themselves and then read the words to see which ones will match the pictures.
