Grouping Students for Small Groups – EP 401

Episode Takeaways

Need some simple tips for grouping students for small groups? As educators, we spend the first few weeks of school creating rules and routines in our classroom. We practice and rehearse how to complete work and move around our classroom. At some point, it is time to move on and begin your small group instruction.

Small group instruction is an effective tool to provide targeted learning to students in a specific area or skill. It allows you to be more responsive to students and learn more about their strengths and needs that they have. With all that said, you may be asking, “How do I group students for small groups in meaningful ways so that I can deliver these targeted lessons? In today’s episode, I’m going to share with you some ways that you do just that.
