I am a teacher. And also a nerd. And sometimes I do things in public that make others stare at me.
The thoughts and ideas in this blog are my own, unless otherwise stated,and do not represent the views of my employer in any way.

I need some engaging, but independent activities some of my reading students can complete while the rest of the kids catch up on work. They are getting a little burned out on independent reading while the rest of the class tries to get their grades up to passing. 

It’s 7th grade, but I can adapt from a wide range of grade levels.

Any Ideas?
