  • Wow! I’ve been studying for weeks for the Praxis II 5203 and give some great strategies. Thanks for making this video so practical.

  • Thank you so much!

    I’ve just started a yr 1 position as a graduate and really appreciate all the literacy group ideas. Will be making them ready for term 4:)

    I really like these videos. Resources and new ideas are so important starting out.

  • It can be hard at times to give kids choice yet making sure they complete a variety of tasks you need to assess on.. you have done a great job of finding that balance. �� and I love how you incorporate numeracy vocab into your literacy rotations

  • Not certain about the points made but,if anyone else trying to find out how to discipline a toddler try Loctavan Teaching Toddler Strategy (do a search on google )? Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my cousin got great success with it.

  • Hey there Teacher Tales. I find it interesting how good teaching pedagogy translates across the globe!:-)  I am based in the UK but have been an advocate of literacy rotations for some time now, especially when teaching children to read and interpret texts. Like others who have commented, I am interested in Maths rotations. Good luck!

  • Hey! Im a teacher in Melb, I have just stumbled across your page! love it. And yes! Limited primary teachers in Australia vlogging so thank you! Ive been teaching in uk and nz after uni and they dont have literacy groups like us so im still a newby at this.
    I would love to see how maths is intergrated into literacy groups.
    How do you have enough time to correct all the work they have been doing, I feel like that would be a lot when you still used booklets? Where does their work go after that? Is it used for formal assessment at all? How do you use that information to guide your teaching?
    I am really interested in knowing what happens during your literacy groups in the 10 minutes you’ve got with them. I feel like my time is taken up with just reading and don’t have time to teach a new skill. I am guessing this is through planning and what you want them to achieve through every lesson but I totally understand how time is of a virtue! I also find it difficult to keep discussion going further to get to a deeeper level of understanding. Do you tell them the focus of lesson? is it focus of day or week? How do you keep conversation going the second day with the book? Thank you so much! Sorry for all the questions!

  • Great resources and ideas! Thanks for sharing this. I’m sure this will assist lots of teachers in the lower grades ������������I love your snap lock bag alphabet activity!

  • Great video! Id love to see one on math activities too! Loving all the free resources you’ve made use of, I’ll definitely be checking them out when I get a chance.

  • Thank you for this video I am excited to have come across your channel. I am a homeschool mom of 3 boys and our oldest (7) is gifted in math but struggles with reading and I am having a hard time with teaching him to read. I am also a starting out into the youtube world.

  • Thank you for providing us fellow teachers with so many educational literacy activities. My students are only 2 years old but I can definitely use some of these activities with them as well. I look forward to learning more from you!

  • Literacy Rotations has always been a bit of a challenge for me, also. I teach Year 3 and 4, and we do rotations on Thursday and Friday mornings, after I’ve taught a skill earlier in the week. Over the two days the kids do a task each for spelling, grammar, reading and handwriting.
    I loved the spelling task, where the kids make the phone number of their words. I’m going to be adding that to my spelling task cards. My kids will love that!

  • Thank you for posting this I am looking to upgrade my literacy centers as well. This is my first full year on grade 2 and I am always looking for games/ ideas for my students. I would love to see your “boring sentences” as a resource. My students struggle to make five point sentences, and I feel like this game would really help them.
    I would also love to see the numeracy centers you include.

  • Thanks for posting. What a great video! How long does your literacy group go for? And how much time do students spend per station? Thanks!

  • Thank you for uploading this video. I’m in my third year of my primary teaching degree and these activities have given me such inspiration in an area I was lacking it. Thank you so much!

  • 1) re: Teaching babies and toddlers to turn the pages to books…I do the same thing too!

    2) Where did you get the bead storage container? And, how many compartments does yours have? The ones at our local Walmart don’t have enough spaces for an entire alphabet, even with the dividers that come with it.

    3) You have some really creative hands-on activities to do with your littles. Those are really cool.

    4) We’ve been doing the “Read with me” method and didn’t even know it was a true method. LOL

    5) I like that feature of the George Washington book that has the pronunciation at the bottom of the page. I’ve never seen or noticed a book like that. Does it belong to a certain series of books that has that feature?

    I love your tips and tricks. You’re doing a good job on your videos. You’re very informative. I’m sure you’re helping a lot of parents and teachers.

  • thanks for sharing. you are a busy woman and very thoughtful. how many young minds do u limit to your classroom? have you followed your kids to see how successful they use their literacy skills? on an average, what percentage of your students struggled requiring more practice/instruction? your structure is awesome in that you require their full focus of identifying, deciding, putting together, (for lack of a better description) then lastly, writing it down. I commend you on this. do you work the regular school session? half-day and so on? I really appreciate your time and expertise in replying to my comment. I am in northern california, 100 miles south of the Oregon border. you?

  • Hello! I love this activities.. Surely kids will love to read… i love this ideas.. I really amazed you always… Can u share it how you made all that?how u can do it all that nice activities… you have 7kids.. I want to make like that for my kids..
