So...I have to go back to work next week :( My maternity leave will officially be over! I am definitely ready to get back into the "swing" of things...but I hate leaving my little boys! Being that I have ONE week left, I have kinda hit the panic side of me!
So...I have started planning some things and how I want to organize parts of my day! Starting with.....Guided Reading! Dun Dun Dun.....
Since I don't know my students that well and where they are exactly in their reading abilities, I have started with *MY* planning side of it! I have my binder ready to go...
My biggest challenge is always...What will the other kids do that aren't at my group? I don't really implement the Daily 5, but I have come up with my own centers that will hopefully work with this group of firsties! (It can always be modified if needed!)
I have FIVE groups (including my teacher group that reads with me).
Students will complete one center a day....completing all five by Friday! There will be individual activities for the students to work on independently at their area while I am with my reading group.
This is just the start of my planning...but it's getting there!
So...what do you do during Guided Reading??
Have a great Monday!!
