There is one little boy in my class who ALWAYS finishes way before everyone else. I usually send him to read or have him "help" his classmates, but I wanted something more to offer.... so I created this "Bright Minds" math unit. The activities require deep thinking and hopefully will provide a beneficial challenge for those students who race through the work offered to the whole class. We all have those students who need more of a challenge, and I had fun creating these activities to help. There are 6 activities, each with three levels, so the student can work his/her way through the levels. I am working on a language arts unit as well and have some pretty good ideas!
