3 x 24 Inches, White, Pack of 100. Tip: 100 sentence strips goes by fast in GLAD. Consider ordering a couple sets. (Coop Strip Paragraph, Emerging Readers Group, Here There Reading Group, SPC/Reading/Trading Game, Found Poetry)
It's a bit spendy, but worth it if you can swing it! Consider Post It Chart paper for Chants, the Inquiry Chart, Exploration Report, Cognitive Content Dictionary, ABC Book, and other "smaller" charts. (We found the super sticky post it brand to be the stickiest!)
Set of 3, 24". These longer pointers help you track reading with students without blocking their view. (Found Poetry, Coop Strip Paragraph, Reading Groups, etc)
Shapes Sticky Notes, Arrow Shape, 2.72 x 2.56 Inches, Neon Assorted, Self-Stick. Not an essential - but it certainly adds some fun!
Call it what you want but when you write out two full stanzas of a chant and make a "boo-boo" on the 3rd stanza - this is the cover up tape you'll want around!
This little gem works great when you're teaching multiple groups or class periods. Use the highlighter tape to process Chants with one class, then remove and use again with the next class.
The dispenser for this tape adds a bit of expense. Consider saving your dispenser and buying refill tape when you run out instead. Also avail in yellow and green. (2 pack)
These little treasures can be used in multiple ways. They're quick and easy to write on and laminate for your Narrative Input. Or, pass out for dialogue extension lessons after presenting the Narrative. Plus, they work great for Team Tasks - Add to the Walls!
Pants hangars? Not to us! These are our Team Task Hangars! The white wood style makes it easy to add the team's color right on the hangar. Teams store their (11x17 paper) team tasks on the hangars for easy clean up and distribution.
The perfect size paper for students to work collaboratively on the same page at the same time. Consider a combo of Google Doc shared tasks and paper/pencil tasks. 20 Lb Copy Paper, 8.5 x 11 - 3 Ream (1,500 Sheets)
This is our favorite accountability tool for team tasks. Each students adds their work in their own color. All tasks need all four colors. It's OK for different teams to have different colors. Try to avoid yellow and extra light colors.
Notebook Journals for Students, 6 Colors (4.25 x 5.5 Inches) These work great for Interactive Journals OR Learning Logs. Their smaller size and team colors add an extra special touch - and of course - blank pages for sketching!
Oxford Two-Pocket Folders, Assorted Colors, Letter Size, 25 Per Box. In Project GLAD®, each student has a portfolio in their team's color that holds their work for that unit of study. Hint: yellow is not a team color as it is too hard to see when writing in the team's color.
Oxford 2 Pocket Folders, Textured Paper, Assorted Colors, Letter Size, 25 Per Box. This is the second set of colors you'll need for a full class set. While these portfolios are extra sturdy, it's always ok to use construction paper and/or bring in virtual portfolios as well.
