It has taken all year long, but I have finally introduced all five components of daily five! Today we introduced working with words. I sort of felt like I was just introducing literacy centers that the kids already new about, but the were still SO excited!!! They did really awesome and I let them work for 10 minutes!!! I'm a little nervous about putting things all together. But I know that I can do it! Right now we are working in three breakout sessions. First I do a shared reading type of lesson followed by student choice of Read to Self, Read to Someone, or listen to reading. Then I do a phonemic awareness and sight word or phonics lesson, followed by working with words. I finish up with a quick writing lesson (today we did directed drawing) followed by work on writing. Well there is my celebration for today!!!
