    I had a student last year who always finished quickly and needed something to do or he would be a behavior problem. He loved to read and tell be about what he was reading, but he didn't really like to write. One of his favorite things to do was to pick a chapter book or longer nonfiction book (we have AR at our school, but these were not AR books necessarily), read it, and then do some kind of response activity with it. I had talked to him about when he could work on these activities. They worked great for him and his writing skills improved. He never did the same response activity twice in a row. It was a win-win situation.

    The student I described above was also FULL of questions. He was always asking things that I didn't know the answer to, which was great. If I had time right when he asked, we found the answer together. If not we wrote down the question, and when he had some time, he was responsible for finding the answer. He loved doing this too!
