The Daily 5
There are five components which students will work on independently throughout the day. At the beginning of the year, we will focus on Read to Self, Word Work and Read to Someone. By the end of the year, we will utilize all five.
Read to Self
Students have individual bag of books. Students have the opportunity to read quietly and independently. As the year progresses, students will pick their own books for the bag of books. At the beginning of the year, books are selected by Mrs. Sluga.
We will work on making words in Fundations (Phonics), during Sight Word Practice and during independent word work time.
Listen to Reading
We have many books on tape. Students will have the opportunity to listen to books on tape during Daily 5 Time. In addition, we have many opportunities to listen to reading through our mini-lessons, guest readers and read-alouds by Mrs. Sluga.
Read to Someone
We will begin to read to our classmates after December.
Work on Writing
We will work on becoming authors this year, writing independently and in the whole class.
