Reading Clubs in Action!!!

Here are some pics of my reading clubs in action! There are pictures of their clubs folders as well as them using their Stop and Jot books that you can purchase HERE!

Spiderwick Superhero Club

Sports Club

Cute Book Club

Haunted Hour Scary Club

Reading Club Contract

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Club

Jigsaw Jones Mystery Club

Stop and Jot books in Action!!! They are using their club books that I checked out from the library! :)

I also administered the Words their Way Spelling Inventory and split them up into Word Sort Groups depending on their spelling level. Two groups have the same word sort and one group has a different sort. Everyday I time the class sorting their words. I explain to them that they have to read the words as they sort them into their categories. This week we were working on long o so I used this sound in their sorts. Here are two pictures below!

Two groups had an oi and oy sort and then other group had to sort the words according to what syllable the long o sound was heard. 

Clapping the syllables out! (Love it!!!)

Finally, we did a noun labeling activity and labeled me! Here is the result! :)

(Check out the side photo bomb LOL!)

Reading Club Stop and Jot Book!

I have posted a new product in my TpT shop! I have created a Reading Clubs "Stop and Jot" book to use in my book clubs! This will help my students use higher level thinking when analyzing texts! I love it! I will also throw in some post-it notes for them to use. I told them to stick them anywhere to show their thinking. I don't care if they are sticking out of their stop and jot books! I will be conferencing with each club to check our their progress too.
Also, once my ipads are up and running I will be using Popplet to have them create webs with their thinking. 

Check back tomorrow for pictures of my product in action!! :)

First Few Weeks of School & Reading Clubs

I hope everyone had a FABULOUS start to the new school year!!!! 

I did!

Phew! Getting married is hard work. I am in the process of changing my last name. It is definitely time consuming!

I have received my ipads from Donors Choose and I cannot wait to start using them. I feel like I have gotten a lot done so far and it is only been 15 days of school!

I started Reading Clubs again! Woo hoo! I love doing them. 

First, each student brainstormed a list of their favorite books. Then, they picked their favorite book or genre and they wrote why they wanted to be in that club. 

Next, I grouped them according to genres and books that were alike and went to the library to get books out for their clubs.

Then, we made huge folders for our clubs and a display to put on our door! Here it is below. :)

And I added QR codes! They have each student in the club explaining why they want to be in that club! :) Love, love, love these codes!

Yay!!! :)
