Last year many teachers at my school began using the Daily 5 framework. After seeing the many successes from last year, all teachers are joining in on the action this year!
(This is where I am jumping for joy.. but you can’t see me!)
Based off of the reading resources the county provides us (Reading Wonders) and the curriculum they have written utilizing those resources, I truly believe Daily 5 is the best way for teachers to layout their reading block.
I saw the MOST growth in reading abilities and skills.
I witnessed students FALLING IN LOVE with books.
I can’t even begin to count the number of times I was unable to get a student who was reading’s attention until a student literally tapped them on the shoulder.
In my new position as STAT/resource teacher, I have began searching for meaningful resources to use for all aspects of Daily 5.
My teachers have just began Daily 5 so their focus is on what my post is on today…
The teachers are basically following what the fabulous sisters shared in their book.
They will begin with introducing the three ways to read a book, good choices during read to self, modeling good/bad behavior, picking good spots, and finally
practicing, practicing, practicing—
and building that stamina!
In order to build that stamina, students must be motivated.
I am motivated by setting goals/having a set purpose.
Students need the same thing!
Last year I created a stamina chart on my whiteboard using Washi tape and dry erase markers. But this year I wanted to be able to provide a resource that all of the teachers could use in their classroom.
Here is your freebie! My teachers were excited about it, so I hope you all will be too. Hopefully, it can help track your students’ growth and motivate them to push farther!
