It seems as if there is never enough time to complete what we set out to do. I carry my lessons over to the next day if required. Sometimes the concept can't be covered in one day, sometimes the students don't fully understand, and I reteach in another way to ensure that all of them are understanding and learning.

In my 5th grade class we have collaborative student learning groups (4 in each group) and they do their labs together. Pairing the ADHD students with others is a great way to allow them the opportunity to work through the lab with their peers and I have found that they are able to make wise behavior choices. Giving the ADHD a specific job also works well.
