The personal learning network for educators
I'm new to this network, so please forgive me... I'd just like to jump into this conversation, as you all sound like wonderful 'new' teachers! I also think I'm pretty good at the humor thing, but I think my biggest strength being reasonably new to the profession is being creative and flexible. Having worked in China with limited resources, and as an occasional teacher it's a life saver at times!
I think reading groups is something I do well. I am able to get my students reading and they enjoy reading independently or with a partner. A coworker and myself started reading and implementing the Daily 5. I love that the literacy center choices are student centered and there are ZERO copies to be made. All of my students have been making reading level progress even my RTI students. Reading daily is the only way to get students to be better readers.
