Yesterday I posted a pic on Instagram of this kit and got lots of great comments from other teachers saying how much they love this intervention system which made me even more excited to use it! I'll be using these materials in combination with my own materials which I know will help my little friends become successful readers and writers.
I'm linking up with the amazing Holly over at Fourth Grade Flipper for her Tried it Tuesday linky with one particular part of this pack- the Take Home Book Bags. I am so pumped for these take home book bags (and the books) so that my little friends will be able to practice reading at home too which lots of them do not have many books at home, so this is a hugely necessary component.
|The Take Home Books are in B&W but the readers for the classroom are in color.|
I'm going to try having students bring back their book bag each day. They will then take out their book from the night before and grab their new book from the little red case next to their number (and then put it right in their book bag). They can then place their old book from the night before back in their number spot in the red case. This will not only give my little friends new books to read regularly at home, but also they will be able to take ownership of their book and make sure to bring it back each day (hopefully!). I'm hoping this plan will work- I'll be trying it out very soon. :)
I organized all the Take Home Books by lesson number so that I can easily grab them and set them in the right spot in the red stand before each group comes into the classroom. Everything is set up right next to each other which will hopefully make this all go smoothly!
|There are so many Take Home Books, these little containers are all full now! I took this pic before I finished organizing them all. :)|
|All ready to send the books home!|
I know I never do any number/math freebies or products since I'm all about reading (and since Amanda rocks those math ideas), but I made these numbers go up to 30 so you can use them in your classrooms as well for whatever reason you can find (labels, counting cards, etc.)! You can download them here!
Thanks so much to Holly for hosting this great weekly linky! Hope everyone's school year is off to a great start as well. :)
Have a great day!
