Reflection: Adjustments to Practice A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words - Section 2: Independent Practice


I have one identified special needs student in my class. He joins us again during our reading and writing block. At the end of the lesson he did not have any pictures. When I asked him why, he said no one would help him. That is unusual because my students are good about helping each other. I asked him if he’d asked anyone. He said yes, including me. We’d tell him to wait; that we’d be right back. He’d wait, but no one ever came back. It dawned on me that I was pulled in different directions, so whenever I tried to circle back to him, someone would call me and off I’d go. Students were so caught up in this new skill they would forget him in their excitement. I felt so guilty!

I decided to create a system so that it wouldn’t happen again. I reserved a laptop for him near the front. I gave him a red cup to place near his laptop if he needed help. That would serve as a visual reminder to me that he needs assistance.
