In a desperate attempt to store reading book packets I used binder rings and caribeeners to attach these two file pocket charts to my cabinets. My school requires everything to be packed away every week so I needed something that was functional and easy to pack away. These are working great. Each child has a pocket and the 4 signs have a different animal with the child's names for that group.
I then have the classes seat work divided into file boxes be animal group. After their reading group is finished one student is assigned to get their file box and take it to the table for the group to work on quietly while I work with the next group.
Our rotations are as follows:
Work with teacher
Work on seat work
Work on writing
Read to self
Each rotation is about 15 minutes with a movement break of one minute in between. This is working so well for me this year. I hope these ideas can help with your reading groups.
Till next time,
