Focus, Focus

Today I put together these folders. I remember being in the university library and needing to read behind a study carrel or I could not focus – there were too many people to watch, friends to talk to and, well, pretty much anything seemed better than studying.

These folders are to help my students focus. I added helps for paragraphs (an idea from Pinterest), spelling helps, and punctuation.
These could also be used for privacy for a test or just as a signal to others that concentration is needed and talking is not a good option.
I often tell my students that I had to use strategies to focus. A study carrel was one as well as giving myself a deadline to meet before meeting friends at the university coffee shop. I will still feel motivated by a really good cup of coffee!

  1. Hi Brenda! I love this blog! Your ideas are great! Thanks for sharing!
    Our school over here is now requiring each of our students(k-6) to have an “office wall” (we refer to them). Our awesome English coordinator (who also happens to be Spec Ed!) developed them using ideas from Excellence in Writing. Students use them when doing any form of writing or test-taking.
    I would have loved this tool when I was in school!
    Thanks again for sharing your awesome ideas!
    Doreen
