For, "I Love to Read" month we all decorate our doors according to a favorite book.
We obvs had to do Pete.
Each time the kids read a book, they write the title on a shoe and we tape it around the door.
I'm lovin' it!
Between all of our reading, we do Daily 5.
Now, if you don't follow my blog, then you are not aware of my Daily 5 obsession.
I love it. The kids love it. It's flawless and the kids are learning.
Our centers are consistent and I'm always printed 2 weeks ahead of schedule.
Here are my centers:
Work With Teacher: Always a beginning sound sort or guided reading groups
Writing center: Writing our letter or words that start with that letter for the week
Read to Self: Students read whatever they want at their level and also search for our sight word of the week
Word Work: Tracing, writing, finding or building our sight word
Listening Center: Listening to stories when our cd player is working and another writing activity when it isn't
Read to Someone: I set out a variety of books each week that the kids can read together. They have to sit EEKK.
