Parent Night

I can't remember where I read this, but recently I heard that just because your child is older and a more fluent/independent reader doesn't mean you should stop reading TO them. It is a great way to...

Small moment topics

I'm really struggling with a student about choosing topics to write about. We are continuing writing small moments but with the emphasis on making them "edge-of-your-seat" stories. This kid can't...

Real Aloud Ideas

These past few years I have been starting the year off reading Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle. They love the silliness of it, but it's got some good vocabulary and requires some inferring.
Other read alouds I...

Out of the Classroom

I know that Joan used to work at a school in my district. I actually was a long term sub in her class at one point--way before she got famous. :) As far as I know, she is no longer working as a...

Writing Folders

The past few years doing Writers' Workshop I've used writing folders--the 2-pocket kind. I have taught 2nd the previous 4 years and this year I'm doing 1st. I tried one year to do a composition...

No Copier, YIKES!

Some things off the top of my head:
1. Write numbers as high as they can on grid paper

Word Collector Poster

If you are talking about the poster to write down interesting words, I just did it the old fashioned way. I got a piece of poster board, a sharpie, and a yard stick and drew a grid.

Daily 5

Daily 5 does not mean that you do all 5 choices everyday. There are 5 things to choose from, but I think most teachers just do 3 rotations. I always have at least 1 "have to" choice everyday. ...

Supplies

You didn't mention what grade you teach, but I would think that it would be easier to just have community supplies that stay in the room. I teach in the primary grades so that is my mind set, but I...

Binder size

Like the pp said, if it gets too big you won't want to carry it around and it becomes less effective. I keep my binder to 1". When it starts to bugle I know it's time to clean it out. I only keep...
