Moving On With Daily Five

Loving implementing Daily Five

After launching Read To Self, it was time to move on into

2. Read to Someone

Again we started with the suggested anchor chart for Read to Someone
and
practised the behaviours that would ensure this was a successful station. 

In my mind it was risky practising the anti behaviours as ‘the sisters’ suggested but…they were right. 

My little rascal was doing his usual thing so I selected him to demonstrate the behaviour that would not be good to have during this Read to Someone time.
 
Needless to say…

He excelled in his demonstration of rolling around the floor, taking the ‘shared book’, being noisy and making ridiculous faces.  The Little Learners laughed hysterically and I immediately ventured ( as suggested) into having him then demonstrate helpful behaviour for Read to Someone. 

SHOCK , HORROR…

He did this perfectly so naturally we all applauded and praised his demonstration.  HE beamed with this attention.  Now for the best news ever,  he AMAZINGLY employed the correct behaviour for the whole session of Read to Someone.  Yes I was astounded.

My Little Learners are proudly now achieving 20minutes of Read to Self perfectly and 12 minutes of Read to Someone brilliantly too.  Have a look at the following photo’s.  They echo my ramblings.  By the way the Little Learners even get up and change their books without being disruptive.

And now…

I'm gathering ideas for Work on Writing so please
share anything you do that’s great and help us out.  Much appreciation for anything!

Happy Saturday!

I've been picking up additional ideas for writing this week too. :o)

For the older grades we'd just jump to outlining and essay writing, but for the littles, well, I needed to start looking at other strategies. So that's what I've been doing this week in my spare time, trying to get it all sorted as to how to teach it.
