Daily 5 program! Last year, The Daily 5 was one of my favorite parts of my day. I loved listening to my students read, providing them with strategies and watching their skills absolutely take off!! Having two of last year's students, I am excited to watch them continue to progress as readers! I created a Daily 5 & CAFE freebie last year as I was putting together my own classroom display.
Guided Math groupings started and my kiddos engaged in the first activities. I am only doing one rotation at this point, and using this time to observe my students' problem-solving skills in action. My rotation board looks like this:
The first of my Guided Math centers is published and available. My Basic Addition and Subtraction Centers includes four activities for each of the stations (except Teacher's Choice!).
Math With Someone Activities -This includes my "Candy Run" board game, Addition Bump, and Addition Go Fish games...
At Work On My Own Activities -This includes work with fact families (adorable Melonheadz families, that is!), comparing sums and differences, "Spend It" - a menu activity, and a color by sum or difference page!
Hands-On: Manipulatives -
This includes four activities involving dice, dominoes and cut-and-paste matching tasks!
My students are so engaged and I'm gathering such informative data! Awesome!! I now have my second unit, Data Management & Graphing, finished as well and I'm so excited to share it with you!
One awesome thing about Thursday was the writing my kiddos did when I was away. You have to see some of these...
|Haha! "Shopping for clothes and makeup and shoes and accessories. So much accessories!"You'd think I was a diva! (I'm not!)|
|Not much of a donut eater either, but Donut Mania sounds like a great place! ;)|
|Thanks to this little one for sending me to Punta Cana for the day. That WOULD be "the life"!!|
|I just loved this picture!|
|I promise I was NOT at a bar in Toronto!!|
