Mavalus Tape

You could probably try Mavalus Tape. It holds well and in my experience doesn't leave a residue. The Mavalus company also makes something called Snazzy Tape that has great patterns but I don't know...

I agree

I have to agree with both varkgirl and capentights. The sharpener from Classroom Friendly Supplies is great. The only problem I have is that it would take a long time for me to sharpen 75 pencils...

I found myself in a similar situation with 2+ years worth of Teachers Helper magazines that I never had time to search through. I finally broke down and put them into binders. I pulled out all the...

I love the nonfiction books from Capstone Press. They have a wide variety of reading levels but the books were pretty expensive for me since I was using my own money. I ended up getting ISBN...

I've done it

A staff developer at the Reading and Writing Project at Teachers College actually suggested using a timer when I asked her for tips on getting my conferences done faster. While she didn't suggest I...

I ordered it when I first started teaching and probably wouldn't do it again. Some of the books were great but there were a lot of holiday-related books (I think there were 5 Halloween titles and 4...

How's This?

I played around with your name tag and inserted my number line. Unfortunately, it doesn't go up very high but it might be easier for you to revise.

Here is the one I made

This is probably more complicated than what you want, but you can see the number line I made.

All I did was type the numbers into a text box, then I made sure the text box had No Fill and No...

Carl Anderson is another brilliant resource. His book How's It Going? A Practical Guide to Conferring with Student Writers has some great information about writing conferences.

They'll probably send one.

This is usually what happens to me:

I order a lot of stuff from reallygoodstuff. Then they send me a coupon with my order. Of course, I just ordered everything I could possibly want from them and...

I'm with you

I follow the TC recommendations. I think the difference is due to where the primary source of your reading instruction happens. I do Reading Workshop (the TC way) and try to pull one or two GR groups...

Shopping for Books

I have my students swap out their books once a week. I have 5 tables in my room and each table is assigned a day to shop in the library. If a child is absent on his or her shopping day, they just do...

Oggie Cooder

Oggie Cooder by Sarah Weeks is a great read aloud. It's about a boy, Oggie, who has the amazing talent of being able to charve cheese - a cross between chewing and carving. It's a very funny book and...

Small Group and 1 to 1

Different people do it different ways, but I try to do both. While my students are reading independently, I have 1 to 1 conferences with readers and try to meet with one small group during this time...
