I apologize for this late post... my little family ran away to the lake for the week and my laptop had a bit of an accident... thank goodness for external hard drives :)
My Daily 5 book actually took the trip with me and brought home a few grains of sand (just a reminder of a fabulous time ;) I am so excited about the fall and beginning the program in my classroom.
Chapter 4 was all about setting up Read to Self. I plan to use the poster of 3 Ways to Read a Book the first day. I want my students to build their confidence as a reader and actually refer to themselves as "readers".
I totally get the idea of creating an anchor chart with the kids. I plan to do just that. This is what I predict the future anchor chart might look like!
I am interested in seeing how quickly my students build stamina. The Daily 5 is not taught in our first grade so this will be brand new for my kiddos (and me ;). I plan to chart their stamina on the freebie I posted last week.
Can't wait for the following few chapters... due to vacations and getaways from the blog hosts... chapter 5 and 6 will be combined and discussed on July 23rd. I'll be hosting that week... on time... I promise... no vacation these next couple of weeks... just moving to a new house! Got to love summer!!!
Be sure to check out Lindsey's fun post on Chapter 4!
