Awesome Assistant

She has been doing word sorts for several years now. Our reading specialist at our school trained all of our assistants on the early steps lesson plan -- word study, reading plans, and all that goes along with our literacy blocks.
I like Letterland...the characters are cute and the students do a great job picking up on the letter sounds while using Letterland. Our Pre-K teachers have been to Letterland training and begin implementing the process with their students. A lot of my kinders come to me already knowing the characters, which is SO helpful! Once they know their letters and sounds, they are ready to start reading!

            I don't know what I would do without mine. It is great having someone else in the classroom that can help monitor spelling groups and knows how/when they are ready to move up to the next sort.

              It's funny, I teach upper grades and have for the entire 10 years that I've been teaching so I've never had an assistant. This year I had one for 30 minutes twice a week and I literally just stared... more
