Education. The Starr Spangled Planner: 10 Ways to Support Students with Hyperactivity & Attention Needs. I know I am not alone when I say that I struggle to sit through staff meetings without doodling on my paper, shifting in my seat, getting up to use the bathroom and occasionally whispering with my teacher friend next to me.

The Starr Spangled Planner: 10 Ways to Support Students with Hyperactivity & Attention Needs

Now, these are every other week, and only for an hour. Every time I leave, I think, "How are kids expected to do it all day?!? " Teaching in an inclusion classroom, I have several students that struggle with hyperactivity and attention. Regardless of whether these struggles stem from a larger learning disability, are part of a complex sensory profile, or from psychological trauma, it can impact their ability to learn and feel successful in the classroom. Today I thought I would share some of the strategies I have learned to support these kiddos (and all kiddos) in my classroom! 1. You have probably seen them used in Pilates classes, but they work great for wrapping around the legs of chairs. 2.

One Sharp Bunch: Guided Reading Organization

I'm here today with a peek into my guided reading block. I'll be sharing how I organize my guided reading materials, schedule out my guided reading groups, as well as how I plan my guided reading lessons! Psst.... I have a guided reading freebie for you at the end! First, let's take a look at my guided reading area. Here's a close up of the drawers behind my table. Let's peek into some of the drawers... shall we?!? I keep all of my tracking supplies and fluency timers inside a separate drawer. We use some type of "tracker" each time we read. My kiddos' favorite are the finger lights!

My favorite are these "Reading Trackers" from Lakeshore . Another tool we use a ton during guided reading is our "Check-A-Roo" checkmarks from Learning Loft. They serve as a great reminder to check for understanding while we are reading with a partner. We also use our reading strategy bookmarks and Five Finger Retelling cards almost every time we meet.
