Let children skip the lesson if they can already complete your learning intention independently.
There is no point in children sitting listening to a lesson if they can independently do your learning intention. Children spend ages listening to the same lessons every year. Some children naturally learn for themselves and shouldn't have to wait for others to learn, let them go off and learn something for themselves, finish a task, practise a skill, help someone else or go onto their next learning intention. This will give you more time to spend with those that need your help.
How can you do this? Make sure the children know their next steps or have access to them using something like a learning matrix. Set up your Learning Matrix on a Google Doc and share them with your students. That way, the student and the teacher can keep track.
