When teachers began asking for time to work with students in small groups, Humboldt Elementary found the time for them. In addition to adjusting the schedule, they empowered students by mixing scaffolded supports with a variety of student-friendly elective enrichments.
Small Group Work With I Choose
Humboldt Elementary made time for small-group work through a program called I Choose. This 30-minute block of time allows fourth, fifth and sixth-grade students to rotate through various interventions within RTI or attend their choice of electives including peer tutoring, library, physical education, computers, or music. The program allows teachers the time for small group work that they’d requested and gives the students a mix of valuable supports and enjoyable enrichments.
