|Work on Writing|
Our day begins with all students completing 'Read to Self' then moving onto 'Read to Someone' which takes about 40 minutes. We then meet together to read a book (focusing on a particular reading strategy) and share our Learning Intention, Success Criteria and Learning Behaviours for the day. The students then rotate through the last three tasks. It has taken us nearly all term, but they are now able to work independently while I work with a small guided reading group or have a conference with an individual student. Some days I step back and take in what is happening in my room and the enthusiasm and independence my students show for their learning never fails to surprise me. Don’t get me wrong, it didn’t happen over night but it has happened!
I would love to know what Daily 5 looks like in your space.
