21 Deciding which Groups to Conduct Surveys for parents, teachers and students Teacher, Parent, Administrator requests Similar issues Consistently being Brought to your Attention

22 Documentation Separate page for student summaries of each group which I write on at the end of each group. (in packet). I copy mine on blue paper to distinguish between group and individual sessions. These papers are kept in individual student’s folder which I keep from K-5 th grade. It’s interesting to see how the students grow and change with friendships, family dynamics, etc. each year.

23 How to Organize Groups I have a file folder holder on the back of my office door to Store materials.  These are stored in the order Of the groups by day of the Week and time.  At the end of each group I write individual notes and prepare for the following group by making copies, etc; then I place everything in the correct pocket for the next time.

24 Keeping Up with Group Sessions Remembering which group session you are teaching can be tricky. I organize by writing groups’ names on the board or making an animal and placing small objects above the animal to determine which group I’m teaching
