postheadericon Skills Sheets for Unit 2 Reading Street



Another day of skills sheets! 

 I use these for planning and teaching. I also keep each skill sheet in a folder with the rest of the resources for each story. I also have a copy in my Teacher Binder for quick reference each day. They come in handy!

postheadericon Happy 90th Day! Skills Sheets for Unit 1 Reading Street





 I can't believe how quickly this year is going by. We are celebrating our 90th day today, and I couldn't be more excited to be half way through the school year. I love the middle of the year. The kids are in a routine, continually reading more and more words each day, and growing by leaps and bounds! 

To celebrate the halfway mark, I thought I would post the skills sheets (by units) throughout the week! We have recevied a few requests for these, so I thought I would post them all together in one place. 


Today, I am going to post Unit 1 Skills Sheets. 


These are great for planning lessons. I also like to keep them in my teacher binder for quick reference in the classroom. I also keep a copy of the overviews at home for planning.

They also are a nice resource to send home to parents each week.

postheadericon DIBELS: Progress Monitoring Awards: LET’S CELEBRATE PROGRESS!

It's time to celebrate progress! 


I'm one of those teachers that look forward to the DIBELS progress monitoring. I can't wait to see their scores each month!


At the same time, I love showing the students how much progress they have made and seeing them smile. That moment alone is why we do, what we do, every day.


I thought it was time to celebrate progress and to celebrate each and every child, whether they made great gains, or whether they made just a tad bit of progress. It's progress either way!


This year, I started to give the children a monthly DIBELS award for them to take home and display proudly in their homes. Each month, I copy the awards on different color paper. That way, they hopefully we will have a collection of awards, each on a different color piece of paper. 


This is an award from October. 



I have now given out two months of awards and have had rave reviews from my students. Some have said their award hangs on the refrigerator, in their rooms, or somewhere special in their homes. Some have said they were rewarded with small toys, dinner at McDonalds, and extra allowance for spending during the week! 


In the packet below, you will see an award for each month of the school year. 

You can download the packet of awards for FREE, by clicking on the image below.
