Ahh, I have still been searching for the best way to confer with readers and writers. I was surfing on different teacher blogs and came across a great idea of using labels to keep the notes. I wish I could find her blog now. :(
When I confer with a student my job is to teach a min-lesson within that moment that will go with him as a reader or writer.
Conferring is a time to do the following
1) Build rapport.
2) Research the teaching point.
5)Send to read or write.
I am really loving my lables. They fit Avery 8660 .
