I have decided to change up a few things in my classroom.
My Reading Block currently consists of Reading Workshop, Centers (4 a day), and Writer's Workshop. But I just haven't felt truly in my element yet this year. Last year, with Daily 5, I fell in love with it. So, I'm bringing it back and I'm so excited!
Setting up my bulletin board starts first!
This board right here used to be my Bucket Fillers board, but I'm changing it!
Red Group, Orange Group, Green Group, Blue Group, Purple Group
Last year, I kept Daily 5 exactly the way suggested: Read to Self, Read to Someone, Work on Writing, Word Work, and Listen to Reading.
This year, I'm going to change it up!
*Read to Someone/Read to Self every other day
*Skill Drill (this is where my volunteer moms will help)
*Teacher Time (small group)
This was the mess beforehand.
Anyone else's classroom look like this right now!?
And on a side note, this is what I had to drive home in. It was miserable!
