Another resource is up on The Jordan Project Teachers pay Teachers Store this week. Today’s resource are the series of handouts I used to organize my home reading program. At the start of our home reading program I would send home the Reading Log Handout, which outlines the expectations of our reading program as well as tips for reading with a child in the home. The log would be packaged with an appropriate reading level book in a large zip lock freezer bag. When the time came, for my extra avid readers I would simply print off and add extra reading log pages to their home reading package. Below you can read the handout I sent home to parents which outlines the simple but effective structure of my home reading program. From there, head over to the store to download the entire Home Reading Package. Continue reading “Home Reading Program and Log”
In light of The Jordan Project Teachers pay Teachers Store being up and running I figured I should start a recurring theme to highlight some of the free resources available. As you remember our store is still a work in progress but I have played around with some of the pricing resulting in even more free materials. My main motivation behind the store is to help ease my colleges planning, so please go explore. I am loving watching all my resources be downloaded. You have no idea how much my heart leaps knowing that exceptional educators all over the place are downloading and using MY curricular design. I seriously am so over the top excited about it all.
As for this week, the free resource is a simple classroom management tool to help organize the learning environment. It is a series of beautiful and minimal supply labels for teachers to use to decorate and label the supplies in their classroom. Each label is 4 inches by four inches and can be cut out by hand or with a 4 inch die cut. It is up to the educator but I always laminate my labels to help them withstand the wear and tear of little hands. Outside the classroom, these labels could also be used by the extra organized mama who wants to keep an orderly, curated home learning space. Enjoy, share and don’t hesitate to send pictures of how you use the materials. I love seeing my work in real time.
