I'm linking up with my friends over at Primary Chalkboard for our new monthly "Chalk Talk". Today my video is a little tour of my classroom. I didn't show you my entire classroom, just parts of it. You will see my obsession with being color-coordinated. I teach k-3 reading, so I wanted to show you how I organize those different levels. My hope is that you will get some organizational tips for your reading groups. :)
If I were a classroom teacher, I would use these same ideas for my reading groups. Instead of being color-coordinated by grade level, I would just color-coordinate by reading group. As you watch this video, if you are a classroom teacher, you can think of it that way. :) Hope you find some ideas or, at the very least, enjoy peaking into my classroom. :)

PS. What kind of video would you want to see next time? Leave a comment if there is something you would like to see. I can't video student faces, but I'm trying to figure out how I could video myself teaching without showing any student faces... Would you like to see a guided reading lesson? A running record in action with explanation of what I learned from that assessment? A word word session? How I used to do my classroom literacy centers? What's in my assessment binders?
I'll do my best to make a useful video for you. :)
