DAILY 5 ROCKED IN MY CLASSROOM TODAY OR SHOULD I SAY...MY KIDDOS ROCKED IT. THIS POST IS SHARING THE RESOURCES THAT I USE AND WILL USE ALL YEAR LONG!
|Read To Self ~ My students can read from their book bucket, a themed story picture book, or from their poetry binders.|
|I teach a letter poem a day at the beginning of the year. Kinder by Kim's Poetry Journals are easy to recite and read the alphabet poems the rest of the year.|
|Listen to Reading ~ The students will listen to a story that is assigned for the month. Then he/she will complete a worksheet that corresponds with the story.|
|The books and response sheets that I will be using are from Deedee Wills Listen Up! Units. I add 3 different response sheets at the center. I love that they cover so many skills/concepts the kids are learning.|
|Work on Writing ~ Gotta have spaceman at your center!|
|Another great unit from Deedee Wills. You should just go out and buy the complete set of Writing Work Stations. What is GREAT...is that when I change it out each month the student know what to do because it is the same concepts...just corresponds with the themes of month!|
|Read with Partner ~ the students LOVE to read the room and books to each other. Especially...if they are reading to the principal or the president too!|
|Meet with Teacher ~ First we practiced the importance of pointing to words while reading.|
|The activities above are from Julie Lee's Guided Reading for Kinders Part 1. I was NOT going to buy this unit. My son needs new mittens...but I couldn't help myself. I am SO HAPPY that I did. There are so many great resources to use with all the leveled groups you are working with. I wish I could show you all that it contains...but you will just have to go and buy it for your classroom! You won't regret it....trust me!!!|
|I use Reading A-Z to find level books that fit my students. Look at them pointing while reading....THANKS JULIE LEE!|
|This mini writing activity is from Tara West's Step-by-Step-Guided-Reading-Plans. Her units do a great job GUIDING you through a small group lesson with your kiddos. I love the differentiation she incorporates with each week.|
|Sorry...I don't have any pictures but I use Caitlin Clabby's Word Work each month. She blogged about it HERE at Kindergarten Smiles.|
REALLY MISSING MY MOM TODAY. I COULD ALMOST FEEL HOW PROUD SHE WAS OF ME TODAY FROM ABOVE...THAT I NEEDED TO SHARE WHAT IS WORKING IN MY CLASSROOM WITH YOU!
