I am linking up with The Primary Peach for their Organizational Tricks and Tools linky to share my plan for organizing my groups this year.
During the first week of school, we are required to get an "on demand" writing sample to assess where students are at with their writing skills. My plan is to evaluate this writing and immediately record the area where each student would most benefit from additional instruction. I created this form so I can write students' names in as I check their writing.
Once I have my students organized into groups, I will need a better way to organize my plans. Last year, I created a guided reading planning sheet (free here) that worked out very well. I made a few adjustments to the form, and I am going to try it out for writing groups.
If you would like to use either or both of these forms, you can download them here.
Thank you, The Primary Peach for hosting this very helpful linky!
Have a great week!
