March Madness!

…and January, and February…. I am hoping for some normalcy in my life soon!  I am working on this though…


I hope to have it finished in the next couple of days….

For this week, here is what I have going in my Daily 5 Word Work drawers and in my math center drawers…


So, Daily 5 is a work in progress for me.  I’m really trying to figure out what works for my teaching style, my group of 24 kiddos, the extra reading help we get, and also how I can make this work without extra Title 1/Reading help next year….it really makes my brain HURT!  Here is what our rotation chart looks like now…


Where the kiddos have “read to self” this is when they will be pulled for RTI, guided reading groups, or 1:1 conferences.  I was doing 3 rounds, but I just felt TOO rushed, so I backed off and am now doing just 2 rounds.  If one of our reading teachers or RTI support staff can’t take that particular group of kiddos, they will stay in the classroom and “read to self”.  When children are finished with their activity, they’ll do the activity on the far right hand side of the chart.

Clear as mud?

I have also been working on incorporating more sorts into our day – I’m anxious to share with you the work we have done over the past year in our school! I’m going to snap some pictures {soon} and blog about it {I hope!}

In the meantime, be sure to enter my giveaway from the previous post!
