Color code reading groups. Everything you need for that group will be kept in that colored bin. Laminate cards and write names using a Vis-a-Vis.

This has been hammered into my head ever since last semester! As an English teacher, we're held responsible for the teaching of Literacy. However, it is EVERY teacher's job to promote Literacy, not just ours! Every teacher, no matter what their content area is, should be integrating Literacy into their lessons!
