I am really envious of my friends and colleagues who are organized. I am just not one of those people. I’ll confess my computer files are a mess. Files are saved on several different computers, in different folders and under a variety of file names. Well, conferences are coming up soon and I’m on a mission this morning to organize all my handouts and put them into one file on my hard drive and under file names that I can easily recognize. It was my goal to have a parent handout developed for each of the 5 Big Ideas of Reading Instruction–Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Fluency, Vocabulary and Reading Comprehension–and to have them grade specific. Well, I’m not quite done yet. I have yet to develop the Vocabulary and Phonics handouts. I am hoping, though, that you find the ones that I have completed helpful.

While I was researching the information to create the parent handouts, I found that there was great information for teachers to have that I didn’t quite want to put into the parent handouts. So what I did was create teacher companion handouts. Again, I am still working on the Vocabulary and Phonics handouts, but hope you find the ones I’ve created useful.
