    Hi Melissa,
    I taught grade one/two in my practicum and my sponsor teacher had a great system set up so that she/I could reach all the students. From 9:00-recess was L.A. She had created literacy centres which included printing, journal, and an activity centre (this centre had activity cards that were theme related and they completed this activity in a separate book). Basically the class was set in four groups based on reading level. She would circulate the groups around:
    Stations (20 mins each)
    1: Guided Reading with the teacher- you could do your spelling here too
    2rinting
    3:Journal
    4:Literacy centre or listening then illustrate (grade two's can do beginning, middle, end and a short sentence)
    It will take some time training them not to bother you while you are with your reading groups but after a few weeks the routine will br in place and you will have independent workers. I hope this gives you some ideas! Good Luck!
    Natalie
