The sound was intermittent. I learned a few ideas on differentiation.
It gave you different things to think about and ways to differentiate with the gifted readers. The sound would go in and out at times.

I really enjoyed this, thank you! I sometimes focus so much on the struggling readers, that I need to remember the gifted readers need opportunities, too. Thanks!
