This week's tip comes from a member of our Facebook group on how to create an effective check-out system for your Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™ Guided Reading book room.
"We are blessed to have received the Guided Reading Classroom materials for 3rd, 4th, and 5th to supply our school's bookroom. We decided to try something different for our school-wide checkout system. We wanted to make it as quick and easy as possible so that we would know what books have been checked out and by who. We are hoping that this way if a teacher wants a certain text set that is already checked out, they know who to go find and ask at a quick glance. We have also made it a goal this year to really focus on pulling our guided reading books to match our students' interests first, as well as their needs, based on analyzing and reflecting on our reading records, conferring notes, and group's lesson as responsively as possible. Our teachers are super excited to have such incredible resources at their fingertips! =) Thank you to SCSD and Fountas and Pinnell! <3."
