Leveled Readers

       So my poor husband did not feel well today, so we did not work on the crate seats. Hopefully, he will feel better tomorrow and we can make them. On another note, I would like to share how I organize my leveled readers. I teach 5th and 6th grade reading with over 80 students. So that means a lot of leveled readers are needed to meet all the needs.

       I organize all the readers into baskets. A baskets for each unit organized by the week. I further organize them by color. Green for below basic, yellow for on-level, and blue for advance. The yellow word strip marks where the books I have out belong. This makes it much easier to keep all the books organized and in order.




                   
      Students never get their books from the baskets. Students get their leveled reader and activities from the pocket chart. The pocket chart is labeled with their grade and color. The first column is for their books, second column for blank activities, and third column is for their completed work.



     Please let me know if you have any questions about my leveled reader system or if you have suggestions.
