    1. Modeled and Independent Reading rotation procedures I plan to use are... a. have a spot for students to keep items, teach and practice procedures, scaffold instruction, and re-teach as needed. 2. My plan for setting up the space is ... to keep spaces clear, add photo support, have a visual checklist for each rotation posted, and have materials at the student level. 3. My ideas for celebrating success are...popcorn parties, free crazy bread, class cash, and make a movie from your book choice projects. 4. Questions I have for my colleagues are... How do you plan to keep students engaged when they have a poor attitude.

    1. Modeled and Independent Reading rotation procedures I plan to use are sentence starters. 2. My plan for setting up the space is to create 3 different zones: READ 180, Silent Reading, and Small Group. 3. My ideas for celebrating success are giving verbal praise for "trophies" achieved on the student dashboard. 4. Questions I have for my colleagues are: What types of prizes motivate students?

    1. Modeled and Independent Reading rotation procedures I plan to use are 2. My plan for setting up the space is to use a carpeted area for a more comfortable for students. 3. My ideas for celebrating success are having a bulletin board dedicated for students to use as they finish their books and pass their SRC quizzes.

Also, I intend to take a participation grade based on students' on-task behavior during the independent reading rotation. 2. My plan for setting up the space is distinct spaces for each rotation. Posters with sentence stems for reflecting on reading. Making sure the space is comfortable and student work is on display. 3.

    1. One Modeled and Independent Reading rotation procedure I plan to use is a large displayed timer and Class Dojo to aid in management and movement. I also plan to use teacher created and a variety of reading logs to track and monitor progress. 2. My plan for setting up the space is to have a clearly designated area for each rotation. My room set-up already lends itself easily to the READ 180 model. 3. My ideas for celebrating success are verbal praise and recognition (individual and corporate) and written forms of encouragement via notes, stickers, and wall/bulletin board displays. 4. No questions for colleagues currently...still training and learning program.

    1. I plan to use reading logs that I have created (individualized to each class) and have a timer displayed so they can read/answer questions accordingly. 2. I would like to have a "reading corner" in my classroom. I want to put a rug out and some bean bags so they students can get comfortable. I want the students to be able to spread out and get lost in their books. 3. In order to celebrate the students' success I plan to reward goals they have set for themselves. I will also encourage the students to try their best so they can monitor their own improvement. I do not have any questions for my colleagues at this time.

    1. Modeled and Independent Reading rotation procedures I plan to use are reading logs, graphic organizers based on each book, and a timer to keep students on track. 2. My plan for setting up the space is having separate rooms with a co-teacher for small group and reading. 3. My ideas for celebrating success are... That's a good question. Positive encouragement. Possible a goal-setting activity. 4. Questions I have for my colleagues are how to access the first part of day two training. - See more at: http://educatorcommunity.scholastic.com/resource/em-read-180-em-professional-learning-space#sthash.9FXznZkd.dpuf
