If it’s SUNDAY
It’s time for
NIBITS FOR NEWBIES!
This week’s theme…
Grouping for Guided Reading
Relax….this is NOT a post about
LOTS OUT THERE!
This is a quick peek at
HOW I organize my FLUID, reading groups…
It’s ALL about me!
Keep my life organized..
QUICK & EASY!
Here is my Guided Reading Planner…
A file folder…laminated…
4 parts …
( I can ONLY reach 4 groups a day)
Hook & Loop …AKA VELCRO
( MY new BFF!)
I started to make colored names for groupings…
( with my next BFF….WASHI TAPE! )
The groups change (hopefully)
and they change QUICKLY!
I like colors…the mixed colors don’t bother me.
If mixed colors in one group bother you…
USE ALL ONE COLOR! 🙂
And so..each Friday
After assessments…Running Records, observations, etc..etc..etc..
I change my groups by moving a name to another DOT!
Because the folders are laminated, I can make NOTES to myself on the sides!
Change levels…Add supplemental notes
( We added Acelerated Reader to my high two groups on Friday!)
Works for me!
I hope this helps you
KEEP IT REAL!
Happy Teacher…Happy Class!
See you next week!
