Workshop Wednesday: Setting Up Reading


I've finally finished moving, and am now all set up with an internet connection and cable (it was a little scary there for a few days-while I waited for them to hook me up. Fortunately, I live near lots of free wifi places...spent some time at Panera!)

Time for another Workshop Wednesday!

This week I'm going to focus on some things that you need for Reading. (One of my favorite things!)

First, some professional reading to wake up the brain cells:

Then, some task cards for the kids to stay focused:

Task Card Rotations for that day:

Rotation Bookmarks:
Easel Paper & Mr. Sketch Markers for Anchor Charts:

Post-it Notes-not only for you to record, but for the kids as well!
I also pre-set up sections in my Guided Reading Binder, as well as getting my leveled folder ready
Read More about me here, and here

And...lots of books to practice skills!

(And those are just the ones the kids have access to...not my personal stash!)

Smiles and Sunshine,


  1. Thanks for linking up!! I love the idea of having task card rotations. How often do you change out the set of task cards? And I'm the same way with my books. I have my own "stash" that I call "teacher-hand-only books." :-P

  3. I like the task card rotation - that is a great idea. I also love the bookmark idea - what a great way for students to keep track of what they should be doing without having to be told by the teacher! I should get my binder and tracking forms ready too!

  4. You look very well organized! Excellent resources!
