Reflection: Student Grouping Pieces and Parts: Reading Large Pieces of Text Together - Section 1: Getting Ready and Go


I have 27 students in my class and they all vary in their abilities to read and comprehend information. I did not want  to single students out of the lesson and I did not want to again pair these students with a partner. Instead I took the sections on plants and animals and assigned these students those sections. 

After I assigned these sections, I walked around to each of them and guided them through finding the different animal and plant names. All of my students could figure out the where the text was listing the different types and they then could copy those names onto their sticky note. 

For a couple of my more severe students with disabilities, I also asked them to draw a quick picture to help them remember the animal they wrote. With so many students, and not an equal amount of sections, I also had these students paired but not in a group. They had the same section, but only worked together when they presented their information to the class.
