      I always universally design my lessons, so all students have access to rigorous material. As a result, I don't spilt up kids or do anything special when organizing students K-4. You can read more about UDL guidelines here:

      In addition, close reading is a great activity to allow all students to delve into text, make predications, and check predications. If you scaffold the close reading process, all students will be able to discuss the text with peers which will help them to see that evidence in the text can both create and prove a hypothesis. You may want to examine some of the close reading lessons on They have some great ones!
