You want to meet with as many students as you can during independent reading or writing time. But what keeps happening?
As you walk around the classroom, students are raising hands trying to get your attention. They are tapping you on the shoulder as you confer with another student. They are coming to your back table to interrupt your small group instruction. These disruptions can cause you to not meet with 2 more students individually or 1 more small group.
When I taught 2nd grade, I often found myself repeating the same strategy over and over again to multiple students. Then I would say to myself, “Why didn’t I just pull these students together as a small group and teach the strategy just one time?” Or after I began my conference with a student I realize another student that could have benefited from that strategy but there were so far away and I didn't want to stop in the middle of the conference to go get them.
