Do you use Pinterest? Check out the iTeacherSuite Pinterest page for engaging lessons and activities. Thanks to former First Grade teacher Tiffany Wynn for sharing this idea for to help a student stay focused on their work:
Cut a file folder into strips. The shorter the attention span, the smaller you will cut the strips. This one is cut into 3 parts. Students open 1 flap at a time and always begin at the top and work their way down. Students complete the work that they can see when a flap is open.
