This is probably one of my favorite things for my classroom so far. It’s a little self-assessment flip chart. I have made one for each student and it will sit on the corner of their desk. It is small enough that it won’t be embarrassing for the student but it’s big enough that I can see at a glance who is having trouble with the topic and who is doing fine. I might not use it for every lesson, but I do think that if I get the kids into the habit of using the flip chart for the first month…

Towards the end of the year, the kids knew what I was doing. I would start out with the remember type questions, and then move towards evaluate. Next year I want to get them to be more able to ask these…

With all the data we're asked to keep on our students, I like finding age-appropriate ways they can be part of the progress monitoring plan. Inviting children to participate in their own data collection is very empowering, especially for our most fragile readers who worry they're "not getting it" (this mystery called reading).

New Guided Reading Groups
The buckets are packed with goodies, and the kids were soooooo excited to start our new guided reading groups this week. I have 5 different groups with 4 students in each group. Each group will be reading a different Jerry Spinelli novel: Wringer, Report to the Principal's Office, Maniac Magee, Loser, and Fourth Grade Rats. We do guided reading each day, and all groups work at the same time. My resource teacher works with me during this time, and she meets with (runs) the same group each day…
