Reflection: High Quality Task Add in Some Adjectives! - Section 1: Why Sort Adjectives?


This activity is really easy to differentiate.  Not only can I add or take away titles and/or cards that go with the titles, but I can also assign certain tasks to certain students.

For example, I like to assign tasks with 2 or 3 titles to my students who are approaching level; meanwhile, I like to assign tasks with 4 or 5 titles to my students who are beyond.  Now, if I group a beyond student with an approaching student, I might have the beyond student lead the approaching student through all of the the titles and their sorting.

I like to make this task one that is challenging, no matter what level my students might be performing on.  An easy way to do this is to add challenging words to the sort.  This way, students will have to work together and talk through it even more; the more they talk, the more they learn!
