Back to school stuff... How do you organize all of your running records and conference notes for Reading Workshop? There are so many ways! To all the newbies out there, it is just a trial and error kind of deal until you find something that works for you. Here is what is CURRENTLY working for me...
My Conferring Binder:
Here is where I store all of my notes. Notice the tabs. The binder decor is just from a scrapbook page that I cut to fit the binder. It makes it easy for me to see it at a glance since I have so many binders!
Here is the inside of the binder. I have each kiddos' name labeled and then I place their conference sticky under their name. Right now you can see I placed their goal for the quarter that they wrote themselves. I can use all of this at conferences because I can just take off the stack of stickies to use with the parents. (PS. if you know how to rotate a pic in blogger, please let me know! My pic was not portrait!)
Again- I'm sorry the pics are weird. They are landscape in my files...
Here is what I take around with me. It is a mini clipboard with a pen attached to the back so I never have to search for one. (and I have a special pen that I like) I use the chart to keep notes at a glance. I explained this in one of my previous posts that you can check out here. You can also download the chart.
So what works for you? I really would love to know!!
