    separate lists
    By tia

    i teach 6th, and i usually have at least 3 groups--advanced, "on grade level", and below. (they aren't called that.) i've had 4 groups, too.

    *part of my survey the first day asks them to tell me about their previous spelling list--advanced, number of words, etc--this helps me target the low ones faster. i then try them at my regular words, but reduced list to see how they do.

    *this is how i give spelling tests: i give 3 lists at a time (that's the max i can do and they can follow). they get into the pattern pretty quickly--i always give one group's first, the next second, and the third last--so they know to ignore the other words. (and i say all three words 2 times--then when finished with the lists, i go back and repeat only the first list words, then second, etc.) when i have 4 lists, i do the 4th list afterward, or i have an assistant come in to do that list while i do the others. hope that makes sense--good luck to you.
