Here are some ideas I have more ideas but I am limited to 2,000 Characters emailme at rabbigreenblatt@gmail.com 

Chumash Round Robin- Fifth Grade
As a pre assessment before we started learning a new section in Chumash I asked the students to write down on a piece of paper words they already know and their translation as well as words they don’t know and the root of those words. Prior to that I had them in random groups and told them they could work as a group. I then gave each student a number. After about 10 min I said all number 1 and 2 should rotate to the left and see if anyone that they are now working with can help them with the words they don’t know. I did the same thing later and had numbers 3 and 4 rotate to the right. At the end we came back as a class to see how many words they still didn’t know. From 7 verses they only didn’t know 3 and they didn’t have to sit there listening to me translate all the words and we were able to learn those 7 verses in half the time it would have taken us in a more traditional way.
Fifth Grade Chumash Differentiation 
Today my fifth grade lesson was differentiated. I divided the class into three levels based on ability. Each group had to read the same set of pesukim (verses) but each group had a different assignment. The weakest group worked with me and we filled out a translation sheet together. The other two groups did not get a translation sheet. I also had an anchor activity if the high end group finished first.
Then at the end of the lesson we reviewed the material together through guided and direct questions.
