I am at a loss here. I want to know how on earth you other teachers manage to not only teach all day but blog regularly, have a life, and make these AWESOME products?! I feel like I am struggling here. Is there some secret I am missing? If so, please share. I will be forever grateful! Anyhow, I have been working hard to get things ready for literacy centers. Don’t get me wrong, I have been doing them since the beginning of school but now I am slowly starting to implement these A-MA-ZING ideas that we got at a workshop last year. It was one of those trainings that open up your eyes and you hear angels singing in the background. It was THAT. GOOD. The whole idea is that if you take a lot (a lllllot) of time introducing them and training the kiddos, then you will have more success at your guided reading table. Not only that, but you wont have to change your centers for 4-6 weeks. Yeah… I know you are thinking “What?! Never.” Trust me, I was that way too. Like I said though, it was THAT GOOD. I can’t wait to build up a long post about it to share with y’all but it is going to have to wait until I am completely done. Maybe a week or two depending on my kiddos. Even though I am planning a post on it, I DO want to share something that will be at one of my literacy centers. It is my word graphs! I am not sure why the picture is coming out so blurry but I assure you that when you print them, they are crisp and clear! These are currently in my library center and the kiddos pick which words they would like to find while reading their easy-reader books. I was so happy to see them choose this first at the library center and enjoy it way more than I thought they would. I also love that I see my lower kiddos really studying the word to be able to find it in their book. It is helping a lot! I hope you guys can use this in your classroom as well or even as homework!
