    A lot of the activities my student did were similar to one's the students did with their guided reading books. They made flip-books, step-books (one of the favorite activities), posters, wrote letters, etc. A lot of the ideas I took from a book caled Teachin's Cheap: Using Bags, Sacks, Paper, & Boxes in the Classroom. It is intended for K-3, but many ideas could probably be adapted for older grades. The student I had would often choose what he wanted to do and what would be most appropriate for the book he read. Sometimes I would give him the directions for making one of these and he would do the rest (reading the directions, do an measuring, etc.). He needed several more challenges that most of my other students, so I was always looking for ways to challenge him.

    Also, this student became more knowledgable about the computer, I had him do some of his activities on there. He learned that the computer could be a great tool to help him answer all of his questions. He wrote the answers to his questions, and if it was something that would not be too far over the other students heads, he would explain his answer.
