The needy student
As the students grow more and more comfortable in the classroom and with you, you can start to pick up on the different students and their different personality traits. A few students might need a little more attention than others. How do we, as teachers, spread our time equally amongst all the students?

I think it is important to remember that being fair does not mean being equal. Different students need different things. Some students need more time and others work fine independently. Maybe keeping a list or writing home positive notes from time to time and keeping track of this will ensure that everyone is at least receiving positive, genuine, feedback.

As teachers, we have to remember how to apply differentiated instruction. As someone else stated, fair applies to providing each students with the modifications he or she desires. In addition, we have to remember that it is not always possible to share our time equally. However, we can let our students know how well they are doing by providing them with specific positive praise and grouping them accordingly.

It's important to use differentiated instruction in the classroom to give each student the necessary accommodations and attention that they require. Additionally, using group work in the classroom to put students of varying academic levels together can help the students who might need a little extra help.

Depending on the grade students can get more attention in smaller groups. This is particularly seen with younger grades in "center time". One of the centers would have the teacher working with the students on center work. Or the teacher could use the center time to be at their desk and call over students individually, and keep a note of who they talk to every day and try to make it through the class list within the week.

Once a teacher has determined the reading level of their students, they can put their students into groups, regarding their reading levels. Once this is done, the teacher can work with all of the struggling readers at one time.

Additionally, I would work with the most advanced readers first and then after they complete the assignment, give them additional work that will challenge them. This will create more time to work with the lower level students.

Small instruction groups ensure every student gets the instruction they need. Also, at the end of the day I make sure that I sit down with the kids and talk to them about their day, what they can do better, goals etc..., to make sure they get the emotional support they all need as well.

I would give each student the same time frame with interaction. It might be because they aren't getting enough attention at home so they reach out to the next authority figure. I would maybe help the student if they need help, but I would try to even the time out.
