Daily 5 works a lot on reading stamina which of course helps build a foundation for spelling and writing skills (which is also included in the curriculum).  Repinned: Tons of Daily 5 word work ideas...center ideas

Daily 5 Station/Literacy Station Organization Linky Party So I have a student teacher that started several weeks ago...I know...BE JEALOUS! Since I have started Daily 5 on my own....yes no training just reading the book & excessive blog stalking...I thought I would share what I have come up with. If you have been following me for a while you know that I am O.B.S.E.S.S.E.D with my job & am very OCD about my job. My husband wishes I was so OCD about cleaning around the house but .....NOT…

Growing First: Flashlight Friday Makes Building Stamina a Breeze.  Where to place this in my Pinterest categories was difficult.  First grade builds stamina in the post, but wouldn't this work for upper grades, too.  And I wonder if using the flashlights might make students quieter, too.

Flashlight Friday Makes Building Stamina a Breeze

Our classroom is working on building our reading stamina. We are doing read to self for 12 minutes. Our goal is to reach 30 minutes. At each 10 minute interval we have a small classroom celebration, like extra recess, a treat, or playing a game in the gym with our teacher. However, when we reach our 30 minute goal, we are planning to celebrate with a Read-In (bring blankets, wear P.J.'s, enjoy a treat, and READ). Today was the kickoff of our Flashlight Fridays routine. During flashlight…

Heart Maps are one of my favorite things - great activity! I also love your idea about building reading stamina at home. I read your post and thought, "Duh! Why didn't I think of that?!" It makes so much sense and goes along perfectly with Daily 5. Thanks for sharing!

Juice Boxes and Crayolas: Organization Week Day 2: Literacy (aka Daily 3 Bootcamp)

Organization Week Day 2: Literacy (aka Daily 3 Bootcamp)

Yesterday's organization linky party from Mrs. Patton's Patch was on literacy centers. As yesterday was a crazy day (make that Crazy with a capital C!) as Mondays tend to be, I'm a day late. :) Actually, I'm a day late and a little off topic, since I don't use literacy centers in my classroom. Centers just DON'T work for me and my kiddos. I use the Daily 3, an adapted version of the Daily 5. My Daily 3 are Read to Self, Work on Writing, and Word Work. Since I am required to use a basal…

I found that a lot of kids in my kindergarten reading group were having trouble remembering to take breaths between sentences. I told them to think of the punctuation marks as little stop signs to help them remember to take a little pause and then continue reading.

Literacy Station Rotation Chart

Yesterday I was in a hurry and I forgot to post pictures of my literacy station rotation chart. The Daily 5 says to eventually allow kids to choose their own stations and I've tried that but I never felt comfortable with it. I also have an inclusion class and sometimes those kids (and others too) just need more structure. So my kids have to follow this rotation chart. We only do 4 stations a day (and they stay the same all week). The kids' names are on index cards and then they see the order…
