Hellloooo, I am working with prek-4/5 and I have separated students into small groups according to their letter recognition and letter sound assessment. Now I'm just trying to figure out what I need to do with all 3 groups of students. (4 in a group) 2 of the groups knew either all or almost all of their letters and letter sounds. The last group did not know all of their letters and hardly knew any letter sounds. SO I am doing some phonics whole group but I know this is not really benefitting all of the students because it's too hard for some and not challenging for others. What do you do with the groups? I'm not really sure where to start with each group and what to do with the phonics book I was given. Students are still young so I don't want to have way way too high expectations of them. BUT it's not fair to many of the kids who already know their letters and letter sounds. So what's the next step? I was thinking about working with the two higher groups on letter and word blending. Then do I just work with the lower groups on some of the other phonics pages which focus on learning each letter individually? Thanks for any help or clarification of my mish-mash.
