I love Daily 5, I love Daily 5, I love Daily 5....I looooooooooove Daily 5! (That was my singing voice btw;) )
Ok, is this terrible? I am kind of nervous and keep waiting for the "honeymoon" to be over. I can't get over how well this is all going!! Starting my morning off with reading (The Book Whisperer idea) has been wonderful! It starts the day in a peaceful way AND because we are reading sooooo much, the kids really are falling back in love with reading instead of "reading for a job or assessment". They even complained when I dinged my chime today for check in after a Read to Self practice. I'm not believing this.....and they are doing the same with Work on Writing. Thanks all for the advise. So far when we have practiced Work on Writing they have stayed in their seats and I have given them something specific to write about reminding them that as we build our stamina, they will have freedom to chose what they write and where they sit. They are doing awesome with this too!!! I am oh so excited!! Yikes, our Lead Teacher popped in today with our county reading person and now they want to come back and film!!! EEKK and I don't mean the Daily 5 EEKK!!! I don't like being filmed. She liked what she saw so I guess that's a good thing:)
I have to say that I don't feel that this would all be going as well as it is without the advice from my bloggy friends who have "been there and done that" with Daily 5. So THANK YOU and I'm here asking for more wisdom....anyone have any advise for the Word Work?? What to start with.....only a few in the beginning...what you do....????
