I want to use Brag Tags with beads like Sandra does at Sweet Times in First. Click on the picture to see her system and check out her great blog.
I want to organize my room so that kids aren't crowded into one space. So the library will be divided up into picture books, non-fiction books, and focus of the month books. The math manipulative will be set up in centers somehow. I haven't figured this out yet--must look at pinterest. I am looking for a nature theme. I have been painting rocks to use for letter identification, sorting, and site words (more on that later this summer).
how I keep my lesson plans
I want to use the system DeeDee Wills uses. She links everything in her lesson plan electronically to the corresponding work and books. It's an amazing resource. I can only attempt to be like her because she is practically perfect.
There are so many examples of her lesson plans, that I think you should just click on her button and the link will take you to all of her Peek at my Week posts.
tracking student achievement
Finally I want to find an app for my iPad where I can quickly track student achievement and challenges throughout the day. I don't want a file stuck somewhere else that I review right before report cards.
As always I welcome all suggestions or tips for examples of teachers using great management techniques that work.
