CoL Update (Term 3, Week 3)
After Paul passed level 21, I changed my reading boxes from the small cardboard ones used in the colour wheel resource room to these big plastic ones I had in my classroom. I used the colour picker tool to get the actual colour from the Colour Wheel and matched it to the levels.
When I talk to the kids about their reading level, we often refer to the colour rather than the level, so I wanted to have both displayed.
These big containers also fit MORE books, so I could put my Sunshine books in these as well as the Colour Wheel books. Inside the containers are also high-frequency word flash cards that the students use for instant word recognition and spelling games.
