I'm obsessed with Daily 5! Check out my rotation chart & FREEBIES! Well friends, it's official I am obsessed with Daily Five! I read the book & stalked all your blogs & became....OBSESSED! I am loving it & so are my kiddos! It was very intimidated at first because I wasn't sure how I was going to fit it into my schedule & then I found out we are required to do an uninterrupted 90 minute reading block which does not include RTI...ugh! Here are a few shots of my kiddos in action! I know, I know...holy cuteness! Can you say "Namaste"...they can! This is our first try @ "Read to Self" after picking out our "Just Right" books for the week. Of course I set the "Stamina Timer" on the smartboard! After we built up our stamina to 12 minutes I let them have "reading buddies". And then I introduced "Read to Someone". Two of my boys during "Read to Someone". Another perfect example of "Read to Someone". Okay last one...them saying "Namaste". Here is a sheet that I created for "Word Work". This is the sheet for write it-rainbow write it. Write it-build it! WAH-LAH!
Daily 5 (or rather Daily 7) goodies to share.... I seriously can't believe it has been almost 2 months since my last post! This school year is C~R~A~Z~Y!!!! Or maybe it's just me that is crazy! My daily 5 centers are working! The reason I think centers is so successful this year is because I only allow 3 people at each center, except buddy reading (only 2) and technology (4). So far it is working out nicely!
