Hanging Posters In The Classroom!

      Each year for TCAP testing we have to take down anything educational in our room. Actually anything with words on it has to come down. I found I was spending a lot of money on supplies to reattach posters to the classroom wall. I was so excited when I found command picture clips at Walmart about four years ago. I can now change out posters throughout the year, easily take them down to use in instruction, and then put them right back. The math teacher on my team then wanted some for her room. We looked everywhere….Walmart….Target….Home Depot and could never find them. That’s why I hoard….at least that is what I tell myself. You never know if it will be there the next time you want them.  I’ve finally found them on Amazon!

Not a very good picture, but you can see it does its job!

Leveled Readers Organization and Storage for Teachers

How do you organize leveled readers in the classroom?

Are you looking for a way to organize your leveled or decodable readers? I teach 5th and 6th grade reading with over 90 students. So that means a lot of leveled readers are needed to meet all the needs.
I organize all the readers into baskets. Each basket for each unit is arranged by the week. I further organize them by color. 
  • Green for below basic 
  • Yellow for on-level
  • Blue for advance 
The yellow word strip marks the spot for books I have out, so I can quickly put them away at the end of the week. This method makes it easier to keep all the books organized and in order.

Students never get their books from the baskets. Students get their leveled reader and activities from the pocket chart. The pocket chart is labeled with their grade and color. The first column is for their books, the second column is for blank activities, and the third column is for their completed work.
