not enough time
There are students in the class that need a bit of extra time to finish their work but then they get behind in the next subject. I usually have them take the extra work home and bring it back but they have not been doing that. What are some suggestion I can do to alleviate this problem?

If it is more than a few students, it may be the time management of the classroom. You may want to reconsider how much independent time the students have to complete the assignments. However, if it is just a few students, I would utilize the downtime of the classroom such as silent reading time. If the student does take the assignment home, make sure the parents are aware that the assignments are incomplete class work that does need to be completed. A lot of times the students will not inform the parents of the extra assignments in their backpack.

If it is a large portion of the class then maybe you need to rearrange things. The answer might be to give less work or different work. The other answer might be to use class time differently allowing for more work time.

I think maybe you could have them stay during lunch or recess that way they realize that if they aren't going to accept the nice extra time at home you are giving them they can use their free time.

One possible solution could be to send a note home to the parents to let them know that the student is coming home with work that was not completed during class. If they cannot complete it that they will have to complete it during recess the following day. This might either inspire parents to work with student or encourage students to get work done at school.

Not sure that this is the best solution to this problem. Students aren't doing their work at home and it's no guarantee that the notes will reach the parents.

Besides recess, you can have them finish things for morning work. I often use that time for students to catch up on things if they need to.

Have most of the class do practice for the lesson and pull those students into a small group for a better more close knit learning environment.

I like the idea of having learning groups. I've seen this implemented in a 5th-grade classroom. The teacher taught in groups 95% of the time. Each group consisted of students who were at the same level academically. This way all students had the chance to work closely with the teacher and peers and ask questions when necessary.

I definitely agree with the idea to rearrange everyone and give them learning groups. Perhaps having the insight of other students will allow them to complete the assignments in time.

I think having them bring the work home to finish it is a good idea, but since it is not working out to well I would maybe have those few students go in a group in the back of the classroom and have them finish it together. The students in the group should be able to help each other out and get it done faster.

If it is majority of the students who need extra time to complete their assignments, runs to the issue of time management. If that is the case make sure you are giving your students the appropriate amount of time to finish their work, so they do not have to worry about extra assignments. If it is only a few students who need extra time to finish their assignments, I would utilize any downtime like silent reading or during centers. As well as, possibly talking to those students one on one to see if their might be issues on why they need extra time and see how we can solve that together.

I would look into adjusting lesson plans and the amount of work given to accommodate students.

Maybe try to make the work a little less long so they have more time to do it.
