Anchor Activities

Anchor Activities are ongoing activities that students work on independently.  They can be done throughout a unit of study. 

These activities are very helpful when differentiating instruction because when students finish assigned work, they can continue work on anchor activities so others can finish at their own pace.  They allow the teacher to work with small groups or individual students.
