Benchmark Literacy Word Work Freebie

Started a new reading program this year...
Hopefully will be able to roll out and share new ideas as I test them out in "the lab".
The next three weeks are vital. We had a slew of Snow Days and I'm just trying to get as much good learning in as possible.

Guided Reading Planner and Note Taker

I love my guided reading groups!
We learn so much together in such a short amount of time.
I wanted to make sure I was getting the MOST out of each group session, so I copied the LLI format and made templates to record my lessons and student observations.

Happy International Women's Day! (with a Freebie Story Map Gift)

Women all over the world probably aren't doing anything else special today other than what they are already doing, which is...
Kicking B-U-T-T!
You go girls!
I am super proud to be a wife, mom, and teacher.
I am grateful that there are women brave enough to fight back but,
I know that there are many women who are also hiding that need help.
I try my best to help those in need, 
but what if they never ask for help?
What if they are too afraid?
What if they don't know who to ask?
I am praying tonight for solutions to help those in need and hope that they find their light soon.

Sharing Google beautiful artwork here...
Also am going to share a few freebies that I created this weekend.

Bad Blogger

Hiya all! Just checking in to let you know that I tried for...hmm... 6 years to be a blogger, and I am really bad at it. I admit that my posts are all over the place, so I am making an effort to connect with my teaching community mostly through my Instagram stream. It really is easier for me. (L shape on my forehead)

I am keeping this blog to upload goodies and keep archives alive.

So meet me at IG as @teachloveplan!
