At what age do you stop doing this? I have a second grade group with a huge range of ability levels. It's a small group (11 for Math and 8 for Reading). I have three more for math because one of my second graders goes back to first grade for reading, one third grader comes down for math, and another first grader comes up for math (we are in a private school). One of my second graders reads at a kinder level and is in the process (finally!) of being tested for disabilities. All that to say that I have a huge range of reading levels, so I've been reading all the directions for tests and assignments aloud to the class. I teach third grade for religion and don't read the directions, so I'm wondering when do you transition them to this?
