Bad, Bad, Blogger!
So it has been over a year since I last posted. Life with an infant was a challenge, but nothing compared to life with a toddler! Being a full time teacher and mom is tricky, and at times difficult for me to organize. Right now there is one organized apple and it's not me! Our district is trying a balanced literacy approach to meet the common core standards. So, my time has been spent reorganizing my classroom library. A few years ago I went from a leveled library to a genre/author based library. Now it is time to switch back. If it weren't for Scholastic's Book Wizard I wouldn't have been able to do it. For those of you that may be switching to a leveled library, have your students do it! We used on technology time and each child went in with a sleeve of colored dot stickers, a Sharpie and a stack of books. It worked out great and the kids had fun doing it!
