    I am wanting to do math groups within my class as a means of revisiting topics that children have difficulty with. However, I am unsure as to have these groups. During math time, I teach a whole class lesson and then the students go off and practice the skill in their workbooks. Being that the students need to practice this new skill, when would I be able to pull students to work on older skills, such as subtraction?

    One strategy we're trying at our school is something called a "Math Mix-Up" - you can 'call' it whatever you like.

    Three teachers get together and pick a target skill... then split their kids up into three groups, high, on-level, and low. About three times a week, you 'Mix-Up' with one teacher taking a group and targeting the skill for that level. It's only a small amount of time (15 minutes) and the kids LOVE it because they get to work with different teachers and students.
