    Sure! I use it every day during reading groups. I also do math centers once a week, and DI works well then, too. The key is to have something to keep the other students occupied. My kids rotate around the room doing centers such as computers, phonics games, Accelerated Reader, SSR in the class library, math flashcards, math games, "store" with fake money, simple art projects, and math review worksheets. (I don't have all of these set up at one time, that's just a sampling of the things I have done throughout the year.)

    For the most part, my kids do really well with these activities while I'm working with my small groups. The key is to establish ground rules for their behavior during this time from the outset, and it's also very important to reinforce those rules.

    We really like this time in my class. The kids get a lot out of it, and I look forward to it. Small groups have worked really well for our class.
