group. I will instruct them to bring NOTHING to my
station, and let them know that we will be reading the
story Pig In A Wig out of their “Book Buddy” reading
books. The green group will be instructed to work at
their seats with word work. The yellow group will be
working on spelling skills with Mrs. Dudley. Remind the
green group to remember to keep their voices down
to a level 2 at the word work station.

will write it on the whiteboard behind me. At the end
