This post was great! I have also been reflecting on my year as well. This year I decided to place my reading books out in subject related categories; free choice, science, social studies, math, religion. The students did I really good job keeping the books in order but I didn't like how I was unable to track their reading progress with their leisure reading. Next year I plan on using readers wokshop and organizing the book collection by genres, authors, favorites, and even letting them come up with other categories. I will also have children record and reflect on their reading using a reading response binder.
If I am selected I would like the Science Bundle!! I am always trying to find great Science experiments!!
Thanks for the great post.
