Collecting  DATA...

I  do running records to track leveled reading scores.

So how do I keep all of this data?

ONE BIG BINDER!





All data in one binder!

That way I can show growth  from the beginning of the school year!

If you have never done a running record...

Nibits for Newbies 11.22.15

If it's SUNDAY
It's time for
NIBITS FOR NEWBIES!


This week's theme...

Grouping  for  Guided  Reading

Relax....this is NOT a post about 
Guided Reading.

LOTS OUT THERE!

This is a quick peek at 

HOW I organize my FLUID, reading groups...
FOR ME!

It's ALL about me!

Keep my life organized..

QUICK &  EASY!

Here is my Guided Reading Planner...

I know...

SOPHISTICATED..
(NOT!)

A file folder...laminated... 
4 parts ...
 ( I can ONLY reach 4 groups  a day)

Hook & Loop ...AKA  VELCRO  
DOTS!
( MY new  BFF!)
and names.

I started to make colored names for groupings...
( with my next BFF....WASHI TAPE! )

DON'T!
The groups change (hopefully)
and they change QUICKLY!

I like colors...the mixed colors don't bother me.

If mixed colors in one group bother you...
USE ALL ONE COLOR! :)

And so..each Friday
After assessments...Running Records, observations, etc..etc..etc..

I change my groups by moving a name to another DOT!

Because the folders are laminated, I can make NOTES to myself on the sides!

Change levels...Add  supplemental notes 
( We added Acelerated Reader to my high two groups on Friday!)

and so...
Works for me!
PORTABLE  TOO!

I hope this helps you
KEEP IT REAL!

Happy Teacher...Happy Class! 






See you next week!

How do YOU keep track of YOUR Reading Groups??
SHARE  in comments! :)

I LOVE Pinterest...well sort of...

OMG!
There are SOOOOO  many wonderful things on PINTEREST!
I have THOUSANDS of pictures
of things
I want to make, create, cook, send to others, etc, etc, etc...

So  this weekend...
I jumped in!

Now I must preface this...
I don't cook much.
Hubby is the master chef
I clean. I clean well!

So....as an educated adult...I CAN FOLLOW A RECIPE!
Sort of.

Our family cookie exchange is coming up.
I thought it would be CUTE
to have a CENTERPIECE of lollipops
for ALL of the kids to take home.

SO...
Here is what I wanted to make


LOOK HOW CUTE THEY ARE!

OK.
I CAN DO THIS!

I went to my favorite
WALLY  MART
and got my supplies!

Hubby wanted to know WHY I was buying 
100 candy canes in November!

BECAUSE I CAN! :)

So here is my day...



Get out candy canes  & sticks.
Lay on waxed paper.
MAKE SURE THE STICKS TOUCH THE CANDY CANES AT BOTH TOP & BOTTOM!

Need white candy melts for centers.





Well...my oven maybe a little warmer than 300 degrees.
MELTED  QUICKLY!


A LITTLE large?
Hmmm...doesn't quite look like the pinterest picture.
Hmmm.

So..use my fingers to "squish" the bottom & top 
TO THE STICK!

OK..then
melt chocolate (microwave) 
DO NOT BURN!
Go slow & stir often!


White chocolate SMEARED into the middle.
Yes, I dripped all over some.
YES, I used my FINGERS to get in 
all the nooks & crannies!


And YES...my sprinkles look like a 5year old did them!

NOT EXACTLY like PINTEREST...
But I will bet 
 the 20 kiddos
 who come to the family cookie exchange,
Won't CARE!

PS...They haven't SEEN PINTEREST!


Yes...I am putting them into a "CUTE" basket....with foam...surrounded by Candy KISSES!

It will look great!

AND NO ONE,  will say a word!

If they do...

THEY GET TO HOST THE COOKIE EXCHANGE NEXT YEAR!

HA!

So...I love Pinterest...sort of
:)
