Learning for students who struggling to Focus

As I juggle the needs of the 30 students in my year 3 class I have come to realise some of my students are struggling to focus and finish their work on their iPads.

A few students spent most of their time fiddling and fidgeting, and then deleting their work. I have decided I need to go back to basics with them. This has involved making some students use pencil and paper for the bulk of their work.
I have found that students with ADHD in particular struggle to focus on their iPads and do much better with activities that involve materials, gluing cut up sentences, drawing pictures with crayons and writing with pencils in their story books.
