Small Group Writing: Instructional Level p. 71

This section is for kindergarten and first grade (first three months of school). There are three different types of small groups in which students are placed according to their ability. These small groups can have high numbers of students as long as they are ability grouped. The first is the Pre-Emergent Level (or word level) in which students learn how to write high-frequency words, and also how to segment and write simple words. The next group is the Emergent Level (or sentence level). These students learn how to write a complete sentence. Finally, the last group is the Beginner Level (or independent writing). These students write their own stories or information.
