Here is what I came up with, after doing my spelling inventory: -Middle Alphabetic: 4 kids -Late Alphabetic: 2 kids -Early Within Words: 11 kids -Middle Within Words: 3 kids Here are my thoughts: -Do I just put the 2 late alphabetic and 3 middle within words kids into the early within words group? The 4 kids in the middle alphabetic group see the SPED teacher, so she is going to work with them on their sort in the SPED room. -I would move the 2 late alphabetic kiddos back a group, but they can't go into the SPED room, plus they were really close to being in the early within words group anyway. -I figured it wouldn't hurt the middle within words kids to move back a bit to early within words. This would strengthen those skills, and they are only a tiny bit above that group in the first place. The lower amount of groups I have, the better! I have never had a class test this closely together, so having one big group actually seems pretty practical in this case. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
