Yep. It depends where they are in the core subjects, but most people seem to try to combine at least for the content areas (history, science, art, etc.). None of my kids are that close together, but we still combine for history and science. For example, I have a fifth grader, second grader, and a pre-kindergartener all learning American history together. I assign each child reading and writing on his level. The pre-k'er is obviously not doing much other than listening to read alouds and doing easy craft projects, but he's learning a little, too.
