Thanks

X books

I used to have my kids make a X book with all the facts to use as a resource for studying, worksheets, etc. Now, I'm not sure I like this idea anymore. Do you have your kids make a booklet? Or just...

Yes

Definitely Scholastic! Bonus points and cheap rates are the best thing about it. Sometimes they sell them in sets of 5, too.

Edward Tulane

For those that use Edward Tulane, do you do it as whole class novel - like every kid has their own book and you do questions and activities? Or as a whole class read aloud? I've always done it as a...

Too Hard?

Love That Dog is such an amazing book. Sometimes I wonder if it's too tough for third graders? I've always stayed away from DMH because of the divorce issue and I wondered if it was too hard, too....

Guided Reading Level for Conferences

Do you tell parents their child's guided reading level (Fountas & Pinnell)? If so, do you show them a chart for what's appropriate for the grade level? Some teachers are doing that in my school.

What does Morning Meeting look like the first day or two of school? A full meeting? Is there a good greeting or activity to start with?

like it!

I like the numbers! I'll have to try that one. Maybe then they could do a "numbers about me" thing as an early math lesson. Too young for 3rd grade?

The thing I hate...

is when they just get really picky or (lazy?) and take a new pencil from the "sharpened" container before it's really necessary. In other words, the "unsharpened" container gets full by mid-morning! ...

Thanks!

Sounds like what I was hoping to do. The only issue is the folders we have don't have prongs in the middle. Do you think hole punching and brad fasteners would work? Or would it fall apart throughout...

folders/binders

Anyone use some kind of a folder instead of a binder as the BEE (etc.) binders? I am trying to get crafty with sheet protectors and hole punches.
