Can you tell we are strong believers of this reading program? However, back in September when we were all busy getting our classrooms put together we were always thinking one step ahead and mastering one step behind. ALL three of us like things organized and we want to know what we are doing and where we are going. However, the training for Action 100 begins slow so you are able to understand each piece well. Since that isn’t part of any of our DNA, we dove headfirst into a sea of knowledge that we must admit, we soon felt like we were sinking. But “together” we supported each other (filled up our inboxes each night) and began piecing things together and we started to see the great success from our students to the point where we could finally breathe. Yes, that song from Faith Hill just popped into our head. But it is true!
It started with a vision of how we wanted our student conferencing to look and how Guided Reading would change as we know it. We wouldn’t be having students all sitting around our table, reading the same book, discussing the same question. WEIRD, I know…but we would be pulling kids to focus on key foundational skills and comprehension skills that they must master if they want to move through the color levels. After deciding that we wanted to have supplemental assessments that fit hand in hand with this we began our collaboration. Many times we had a brain freeze that hurt just as bad from learning as eating ice cream really really fast! It was collaborating ideas back and forth amongst us that made our minds at ease. When we could finally say, assessments check, we moved on to creating list of words we wanted our students to master. This led directly into games and fun activities that would help us in our classroom to teach the skills each child would need to move on to the next color level.
That leads us on to….drum roll please………our first complete bundle! It has everything to make your life manageable in the classroom. It has supplemental assessments, activities, games, and organizers that help you stay focused during student conferencing. We are now sailing….not sinking! We want to give you a sneak peak of what the rave/ hype is all about. Take a look and head over to a TPT store to help make your life simpler and keep checking back for more bundles!
