This is how I run my #guidedreading groups. My friends have an easy to read, student run board. The board comes editable so you can use any wording you'd like. I spread my reading groups out so that only one student per reading group is at my table. That way, my entire quiet listen to reading group isn't empty. I have a student job that shifts the group names down once per day. They go to each station twice a week. My students visit #readtoself #wordwork #workonwriting #listeningcenter and computer station. Then at the bottom with teacher, my kids grab the list with group names so they put the name of the two groups that will meet with me. The first nine weeks, I help my students move and read who goes where. The second nine weeks on, the helper moves them and reads them. The third and fourth the helper only moves them. The students are expected to know how to read the chart and find their center. (Unless special needs require assistance) we are building responsibility and independence.

If you want simple, clean organization-this is it. There are 8 different color options. So many size labels to choose from. My labels are marked way down today!! It's taken 8 years to get all the storage but it has made me more organized. My kids are more organized. http://bit.ly/japgbundleoflabels #organizedteacher #organizedclassroom #firstyearteacher #teacherocd #labelsfordays #justaprimarygirl

All about my sweet Reid. πŸ’™πŸ’œI was laying in bed, missing my boy and I started looking through pictures. It is truly INCREDIBLE how far my little guy has come. Most of these pictures seem "normal" and we look happy, fun and put together, but some of these were miserable. From struggling to understand what Reid was going through, what hisneeds were/are, ensuring his education is specialized, fighting just to get a picture with the three of us - praying he'd look at the camera, taking 600 pictures to get just one. Calming down after a meltdown, figuring out that Reid didn't like how backpacks (or underwear) felt. Making it through his three surgery recoveries ( all under the age of 4) without any family nearby to help, giving him an iPad and watching people stare at him stim, (actually having strangers say what's wrong with him), buying two of everything so he had one for each hand, watching your child loose eye contact and words, and wondering if I'd ever hear him speak let alone share and understand emotions in himself or others. Watching your child vanish inside of themselves is a nightmare. It takes a toll on every aspect your life. Watching my sweet boy get frustrated with normal everyday tasks still breaks my heart but as I was scrolling through his pictures today, I was reminded of his smile, his laughter, and his little alter ego voice he used for two years. While he may not have been looking at photos, he was HAPPY. We celebrate his ups, no matter how small. I have grown to love looking at things through his eyes. Yes, I still get frustrated. Being a special needs parent is hard. He needs breaks, we need breaks. I constantly remind myself that he's healthy, happy and thriving. His growth makes my heart explode. He is such a strong boy. He is my world. He has come so far. If you're where we are, or where we've been, I see you. Doing the best you can. It WILL get better. I promise. There are still hard days, even weeks. He has taught me so much. He makes me a better mom and makes me want to be the teacher I pray to god he has each year.#reidpatrickhackergrowingup #specialneedsmom #sensoryprocessingdisorder #austismawareness #iteachsped #iteachk #iteachfirst
