Differentiated Grouping in Reading and Math
Students are then placed into leveled reading groups.
Groups are flexible and change throughout the year.
Having flexible small grouping allows focus on different areas such as phonics, comprehension and fluency.
In Math students are also grouped based upon ability. This allows different leveling based upon ability.
There is an opportunity to accelerate grade level.
Word Study is an individualized approach to spelling
Students’ words are taken from the curriculum, their own writing, and phonics skills we are covering.
The students will have more experience with the words, giving them “ownership” over the word.
Students will be asked to write each word in a sentence to show that they understand what the word means. (Punctuation and capitalization are not taken into effect until the third quarter.)
