Read to Self

We have been working hard the last couple of weeks on learning how to do Daily 5.  We started with Read to Self, then Work on Writing, and then Word Work.  We are working very hard to build up our reading stamina.  It is hard to stay in one place and look at a book the whole time.  We are up to 8 minutes now.  We have learned that there are three ways to read a book:

read the words
read the pictures
retell the story

We have our favourite books to read such as the 3 Pete the Cat books, No David, David Goes to School, Chester, and Splat.

  1. We love to catch children reading at our school. Sometimes we take photos and put them on a "Caught Reading' display board.
    What is Daily 5?
