Subject: How to teach in a "one-room schoolhouse"

I am a special education teacher, and have previously worked as an intervention specialist, focusing on phonics and Orton-Gillingham. I am currently teaching as a classroom teacher in a segregated school for children with emotional disturbances, teaching math and science. Although I'm comfortable with the setting and the content, the range of student math ability goes from late first grade to fifth grade. These kids don't know subtraction, but some know some multiplication! I have to fill a 3 hour block with math and science. I can't do individual lessons for all of my students for 3 whole hours. It would kill me and frustrate them, causing negative behaviors. I'm currently teaching basics, like fact families. HELP! Do you have any suggestions?!?!?
