This video shows the K-2 Skills block in action in Brenna Schneider and Katie Benton's Kindergarten and Second Grade classrooms at Lead Academy in Greenville, South Carolina.  It shows how the teachers prepare, assess and group students, select and manage materials, and foster students' self-management and smooth transitions during differentiated small group time. The video addresses common questions and challenges teachers face when implementing this component of the EL Education Language Arts curriculum at grades K-2, in particular how to make most strategic use of the differentiated small group time.
