Reflection: Classroom Setup Chicka Chicka Chat Chat - Section 5: Daily Differentiated Practice


The great part about this lesson is that it can be tailored for each student.  I love that certain students will talk about some things wile others will want to have a discussion about something completely different.  In the end, no matter what they want to talk about (or what I ask them to talk about because they are reluctant), students are always getting meaningful time with me and great practice with good oral language skills at the same time!
I love letting the students talk to me about anything that may be on their mind, but I also love getting them chatting about what is on my agenda.  For example, I have a student who is sometimes absent with no excuse, so I always meet with that student and make sure everything is going okay at home and ask what is going on.  If a student has been sick or gotten hurt, this time is the perfect time to let them know I care and have been thinking about them while also being a great example of good speaking skills.
Overall, this practice can be tailored to any student, for any occasion at any time (that's one minute or longer)!
