Let's get to the good stuff- more Daily 5. So last week we reviewed the three ways to read a book. I made a handwritten little poster with the kids and if you know me you know I despise my handwriting. So what did I do? I made a spiffy one on the computer, of course. Best of all, I'm attaching it here for you.
One more thing- and I cannot claim this as my own. A sweet little teacher across the hall from me came up with this. She drew it all cute and put it up on the chalkboard. Miss Cooper is the best! Again, I'm not that talented to free draw something like that. So, I made my own. Yes, it's a Read to Self time-o-meter. Great for the beginning of school when we are building STAMINA! I think the kids will love it. When you click here you will get two copies of it, you can decide which color scheme you like better. Sorry, mine only goes up to 15 minutes. Maybe I'll make some other chart to get from 15 to 20. We will just have to wait and see!
I hope you all had a great start to school. Can't wait to get back to blogging on a regular basis!
