Word Work Folders – the kids are each having a word work folder that they will take home next term. Each child will have a list of words that they are working on during word work at school and at home as well. At my school, we use the Magic 100 words so each student will start on the Golden Words. I love the idea of the kids knowing that they are working with the Golden Words so they can work on the same list at home and at school. Once they have mastered that list, they will bring their folder back and move onto the Red Words. Last year the kids got the whole 100 words in one go and that was a bit much, so this term we are taking it slowly.
Guided Reading Tub – I am starting guided reading groups next term so I thought it would be fun to have a little tub that is filled with lots of fun reading bits and bobs. I have made these cute little pointers for the kids to use and want to order some of those witchy fingers for a bit of fun!
Forward planning – Organistion is my ultimate Term 2 Goal so I am working on my forward planning document for the term. I’m already finding that this is helping me to feel more organised. I am looking forward to my Sunday planning sessions running a little more smoothly now. As you can see, I’m only at the beginning of my term planning haha
Assessment Folder – I’ve been working hard to try and make the way that I assess my students just a little bit easier. I have developed a special assessment folder that will (one day) be the home of all things assessment. I plan on writing a post entirely about my folder because it’s working very well for me so far! I’ve only added some data tracking checklists to a couple of the sections so my job for the holidays is to work on some more!
