I just finished my first book for the summer! I read “The Daily 5” by “the sisters.” It was a great for reflecting on things that went well during reading centers/guided reading last year, and it was also awesome to grab a few more tidbits to make reading centers even more successful next year. I really want to focus on helping my first graders become more independent!
Now that I’ve finished my first book…
On to book number 2!
As you can see, I am sticking with the reading theme for my next book! I have heard such GREAT things about “The Book Whisperer,” and I can’t wait to get started!
I know a lot of us have summer reading plans. So, what is one thing that you’ve learned that you feel other teachers should know?
My tidbit from “The Daily 5” may seem common sense, but I had never really thought about it this way. The sisters recommend seating kiddos who will have problems working independently in specific areas of the classroom into those areas when practicing Daily 5. This gives them a chance to do it correctly in that specific area. Pretty smart if you ask me. If the kiddo has been successful there before (even for those 3 minute practice sessions), there’s a better chance of it happening again in the future.
