At Dupont we have a 30 minute block called Supplemental. During Supplemental time, we work with small groups that are struggling in areas in reading. I form my groups by tracking data on the weekly tests. Often children rush through parts of the test and don't really think thoroughly. This week I had the kids that did a really good job on test use blogging as a reward. They got to blog on our website about their favorite story in Theme 2 and their favorite part. The students thought this was really "cool" and I am hoping it will motivate some of them to slow down and take their time!
