Reflections on Chapter 6 of the Daily 5
I love it when my students get to the point where they are reading their stories to each other!
The fun thing about the Daily 5 Word Work is that it provides a wonderful platform for differentiation. The other thing I am thrilled about is teaching kids to clean up after themselves and to be orderly in their learning. My students have always been great helpers when it comes to housekeeping jobs, but if I can teach them to clean up as they are working, it will free up so much time at the conclusion of our literacy block! I love this quote from the book: They now know everything they need to know about where materials are in the classroom, how we expect them to work independently and with peers, and how to organize and monitor their time. Perhaps most important, this thoughtful, sustained independent work in literacy has become a daily habit for them.
Doesn't that sound AWESOME!!
I plan to get into my classroom next week and will be posting pictures of my progress in organizing my classroom for the Daily 5.
Little Miss Kindergarten and Kreative in Kinder are both hosting the Linky party for Chapter 6!
