My school used the new Journeys Reading Curriculum this year. Youngster oh Boy will be a lot of information to go through there! We are using the balanced literacy approach, so we’ve three different manuals that people need to filter through every day! In the Comprehensive (Comprehension Guide) they have Mini-Lesson principles that it wants one to write on the chart. Honestly- I love my graph paper (my teammates ordered me the heavy-colored graph paper and it ROCKS!) and I don’t want to “waste” it.

So- I simply typed up those ML principles and imprinted them out. I’ll keep them in a notebook and draw them out each year. Which are those paper books that you have to make-one for each kid! On the online site- they have the decodable books and they are in color and projectable! One less move to make! A week Significantly- who gets the time for you to make 70-paper books?

I was searching more on their online site and noticed that they have interactive whiteboard files for all the phonemic consciousness and phonics lessons! I was very thrilled because I had been thinking about dedicating my entire life this year to making them myself. Their files are way much better than what I would have made! That means I must browse the questions in the comprehension guide just, and a few other items. Everything else is manufactured or projectile!

What seemed super overwhelming now seems a lot more manageable! There is also a section online where you can create a class and assign the leveled readers to your class. I performed around with this for about one hour and couldn’t work out how to insert the course list. I created my class, and groups however, not the actual kiddos titles.

Perhaps we didn’t purchase this? I had been bummed that I couldn’t obtain it to work. They have been utilized by me for 2 years. The kids listen to, read and then have an understanding quiz on animated and in color reading a-z leveled books relatively. They even added the feature that you can print the corresponding worksheets that go with each book. I’ve used this as my “listen to the reading” in my own class.

I figured that it’s the second best thing to working in a little group with me. 90 a year!) but remembering that ALL of my students have access to the internet at home made me look into it further. So- I will bite again the bullet- and buy it! It is just such a great tool and I could even assign my students’ items on the website as homework.

I seriously recommend examining it out! They involve some free samples for a couple levels that you can examine out, day trial videos to watch to learn more and you could sign up for a free 7. One of the best reasons for having moving to a fresh district is that each elementary as they very own literacy coach.

Mine is AMAZING and super helpful. She suggested that we might make a graph to show our read aloud books and post them by genre. So I used the online resources and copied all of the read aloud books for the year. I printed them, laminated them, and glue dotted these two clothespins. Finally I supported the definition from Journeys for every genre and glued the signs that I designed to paper and laminated them again. I purchased the Lakeshore swooping hanging videos Then.

I clipped each genre sign and will suspend this over the back of my room. Each right time that I read a reserve, I’ll grab the right clip and clip it throughout the genre sign. I finally have filled up the area above my boards, which I didn’t know what to place there! Hopefully my hubby doesn’t read my blog post today! If he is- I LOVE YOU and many thanks for making the difference in the lives of many kids! You are so nice with your money!
