So I got started with my new clothes pin labels. I redid my leveled library...check it out! Here is your copy with Guided reading and DRA levels: Leveled Labels A-Z
We have officially begun our first round of inquiry circles and the kids are loving it! I hope it goes as successfully as these past few days, only time will tell. One area I needed to set up with them was the organization of materials and needs to complete their research. I bought baskets from the Dollar Tree and put various books on their related topics, index cards, PostIts, and a folder for each child. For the folders, I gave each child a file folder in which they glued on the cover. The back cover is text codes they will use during their research. Here are a couple photos to show you how we set it up.
