Here is my issue this week- please help...

Now that my kiddos are starting to read longer chapter books (yay!), it is becoming more difficult to manage their guided reading homework each night. When I meet with their guided reading group, we talk about the previous reading assignment and then I assign the next chapter or two for them to read before we meet again. The kids are supposed to be finishing up this reading for their 15 minutes of reading homework each night, but many of the kids are forgetting to read. Then, when it's time to discuss the chapter during guided reading, they have no idea what it is about because they didn't read it. Ahhhh!!! I always have to send the entire group back to their seats to reread the chapter and the bring them back again a few minutes later to discuss. I feel like this is such a waste of instructional time, but I'm not quite sure what else to do to help remind them to complete their reading assignment.

This is where I need your help-- what do you do to make sure that your kids are reading their assigned chapters? Do you do a quick "check-in" the day before you meet with their group? Do you have them reread the chapter before calling them up each time? Please help me out with some ideas- thank you!

Alright, now it's your turn to link up. What do you need some advice on this week?

  1. I know this is kind of frustrating, since I teach 3rd grade students who are (as a majority) low readers. One way I would make sure they do their guided reading homework is by having them complete a short quick comprehension check (5 questions max) over their reading. Unfortunately that means a bit more work for you...

  2. My husband and I have been married for 3 and a half years. In June it will be 7 years that we have been a part of each other lives. Recently he found out about a guy I slept with when we were separated and I did not tell him about. Before we got married we both agreed to let everything out and start fresh. I didn’t tell him. I was embarrassed bc the guy and I never actually had sex…just everything that led up to it. not to mention it was my brothers best friend and a huge mistake. well it came out recently along with some lies. A friend told my husband I cheated on him and I have never cheated on my husband nor would I ever. He is convinced I am a cheater. we have 2 beautiful kids and all I have ever wanted is a happy family. my kids and my husband truly are my everything. I can not see a future where my husband is not in it. I want to do whatever I can to save my marriage but I feel my husband is already set on the divorce. I know I could have been a better wife to him….a wife he deserves but now I fee like I have realized it too late. I look at my kids and I hate myself for allowing myself to break my family apart.

  3. I was in a serious relationship for about 3 years.
    We had a split up in March due to his Ex making threats to his children about me being no good and not to be with me.
    he broke up with me. I pleaded (Mistake) then started the NC rule. After almost a month he contacted me via friends phone and asked me if I was mad. he told me he missed me and loved me.
    We got back together and that lasted almost 2 months.
    Now in early february a similar situation happened again, but with my children. he broke it off again. I did the pleading again with no response from her. I started NC again.
    Friends of mine tell me that he’ll be back again. Through a friend he told them that he loved me & missed me, but to have patience, trust and not to worry.
    so i go in search online if i can get any help to save my relationship with my bf, so luckily i found a web site saying getting your ex back, fix your marriage, and restored broken relationship. so i contacted and gave a try on http://happyspelltemple.webs.com/ he promise and gave me his word that with-in 2 days i will have my relationship restored with my bf which he did as he promise i must say now that me and my bf and living happily together again also we are about to get married now all thanks to Dr happy he is indeed a real spell caster plz if you need any help like my do not hesitate to contact him on happylovespell2@gmail.com or add him on whats-app +2348133873774
