I am super excited to report I am heading to a new school and a new job. I will miss my colleagues and friends at my old school (and even the administrators...they were great), but I am ready for the challenge and change. I am also excited that I already know some teachers at my new school including the awesome librarian. I will be the Reading Specialist at a primary school starting in the Fall.
As the reading specialist, I will get to help set the tone in the building for literacy, as the principal is new to the school, as well...and she wants to build a literacy team first.
We will be using the Fountas and Pinnell leveling kit and I found a wonderful training power point on Teachers Pay Teachers that can help me, help them. Thanks, Jennifer Lockner. (I hope I am giving credit the correct way to Jennifer...if not, please let me know. I want to give credit where credit is due.)
I love the non-fiction support in the F&P leveling kit. What are your favorite parts of the F&P leveling kit? What should I make sure to tell them about these kits? I want to get the "buy in" right away with the teachers.
