I spent today and yesterday in my classroom beginning to get everything ready for the year. My sweet daughter is helping me label all of my books with a Lexile level.
Since we are moving to Common Core, our State is talking about Lexile levels. Our district does not have any test to determine a student's Lexile level. What does your district use? Is there a free instrument out there? (Probably wishful thinking!) Here is a shot of my reading corner right now. It was in a different area of the room last year, but since I am looping with the same group of kids, I want the room to look different for them this year. I'll post again when I get it finished.
