Just finished a great day with "The Sisters" - Gail and Joan! What an amazing day of learning and tips as well as meeting some great new friends, even one from blogworld....Julie from Thoughts of a Third Grade Teacher and I were actually at the same table...what a small world. I can't wait to go back tomorrow and hear more about CAFE!!
Here is a little sample of some the great ideas shared today...
When making the anchor chart for Read to Self you should only do the first two behaviors in order to keep the focus lesson short and the teacher should just provide those behaviors for the students instead of having them brainstorm them. The first two behaviors are Read the Whole Time and Stay in One Spot.
When sending students out to practice you should place them around the room and start by placing your students with the most independence first and end with the least independent.
The other information that was SUPER all had to do with the "Barometer Child." I will share more of that later...off to have some dinner and prepare for tomorrow!
You are awesome to the core–teacher printable
