Reading Focus Wall

Here is my Reading Focus Wall!  This will be a change for me this year.  I had been displaying the CAFE headers and strategies, but I've moved away from this a bit over the last handful of years.  This wall includes genre posters {from Kelly Bates - HERE} and comprehension cards {from Teri at A Cupcake for the Teacher - HERE}.  The Focus Wall poster is a part of our Journeys reading program and is changed out each week.  I have a pad of sticky note stars that I will be using to mark the genre and focus skills on the board each week.  

I designed the headers in Cricut Design Space and cut them out with my machine.  I will forever be in awe of that thing!  I had many questions about this space, so hopefully this short explanation helps!  :)

Class Crate

This wheeling crate is perfect for toting around library books, lunch boxes, etc.  You can find it HERE on Amazon.  If you want to remove the massive sticker off the front, be sure to tackle it when you're feeling patient and have plenty of time.  😏 I recommend soaking it with a hot, wet towel first.  Other than that, it is top notch!  Of course, I had to dress mine up with some vinyl lettering. The Mo Willems characters were from Kohl's several years ago!

Turn-In Trays

I posted my "Turn-In Trays" on Instagram and received lots of questions about them!  This is how I have my students turn in their completed work.  I love this because it takes up very little space and keeps the subjects separated.  I also train my students how to lay the papers in the trays all facing the same way, which saves a ton of time with sorting!  At the end of the day, I have a student stack all of the papers up for me and clip them together.  

I purchased these trays at Staples almost 10 years ago!  I found a link to them HERE.

I created subject labels and a header card, printed them on card stock, laminated them, and hot glued everything to the trays.  If you'd like to purchase the labels I used, you can find them HERE in my TpT Store.  The download includes a PDF of the exact labels I used.  I also included a PPT file where you can edit the subject labels.  

Hope this helps!  :)
