Tips and tools from an elementary school Literacy Coach

So today was our first planning day since school started! I plan with three grade levels one week on Tuesdays, for an extended 90-minute planning period. Then, I plan with the other three grade levels the next Tuesday. Today I met with third, fifth, and first grade.
We're getting started with our fiction study by really spending some time on character analysis. I'll have more on that in a few days! Excited to share some of the ideas we came up with!
To kick off our year on a positive note, I spent about an hour or two last night making 40 flower pens! I followed the directions Tanja from Journey of a Substitute Teacher wrote as a guest blogger on my blog two summers ago. They were easy to follow and the pens turned out so cute!
