Main Graphic Laborless

It is Finally here!


Today I am linking with Laura from Where the Magic Happens, Krista from Teaching Momster, and Lisa from PAWsitively Teaching! I have joined forces once again with my bloggy friends to bring you the best, most amazing giveaway on this Labor Day weekend!
All of us have been thinking about  good ways in which to treat our readers and followers.   We thought hard, and I mean it! Really, really hard… and decided that  we can treat you to our best ideas to work smarter rather than harder… at school and home!
I know what it takes to be a great teacher, the stress, the time, the energy… I could go on and on! I also know that we crave time to ourselves and our families.

So here I go!

There is a time in my classroom that deserves a lot of  respect and care... yep... my guided reading time. I guard my guided reading small groups with my light saber and my Jedi force.  Why?!?!?! Because if I do not conduct my guided reading groups, how are my students going to make progress? Every year I spent countless hours with my data, trying to organize my students and  strive to provide an optimal learning environment. But, how about the materials? Well, if you ask me this is kind of important. Keeping my materials organized saves me a lot of time and stress.

 Take a peek:


Having my materials organized and ready makes my life SO much easier! 





Keeping track, taking anecdotal notes, and running records on a weekly basis provides me with the opportunity to conduct formative assessment, which is essential for reading development.



Bins with materials per reading level. The baskets and groups change CONSTANTLY!



This is what goes inside the baskets. This is for a F&P guided reading level  G. Things inside the baskets are different... and I follow Jan Richardson's approach religiously!
