I am so excited for you to start back up! I have been anxiously awaiting. One thing I did this year was organize my library the way you and Beth do. It helps me consider where I need more books. It also lets me see what the class enjoys. I can see that the humorous fiction bin is running low and I should probably put more in the class!
I am a reading and writing teacher. That is all I teach. I have two different classes so I have them for 2 hours and 15 minutes. This year I started implementing reading response journals. This way we can converse about what they are reading 2-3 times a week while teaching writing with elaboration. How do you find time for more individualizing certain things when you have to teach from a basil too?
