Daily 5: Week 2

This is my first year trying out the Daily 5, and I have to say that it is my students' FAVORITE part of the morning!

Here's what the rotations looked like during Week 2:
WORD WORK

During Word Work, students practiced their spelling words using Spelling Sticks. This is from Regan's 'Sight Word Spelling' pack {here}...it's awesome!

For 'Stick Em Up', they pulled a spelling stick out of the container, read the word, wrote the word, and wrote it along the stick on their page.

For 'Stick Sentences' they pulled a spelling stick out of the container, wrote the word on the stick on their page, then used it to write a sentence.



LISTEN TO READING

Students are enjoying a story from the free site Storyline Online, then filling in a response form in their Listen to Reading folder.
READ TO SELF




Students are reading 'good fit' books from the classroom library.
READ WITH A PARTNER

For this round, students are doing 'Roll, Read, and Highlight'. It is from Cara's pack {here}...it's awesome! Students take turns rolling a die, reading the fluency phrase, and highlighting it. First one to finish their page wins :) 

WORK ON WRITING

There is a TON of choice for students in this station, including writing lists, stories, labelling, writing opinions, narratives, writing to inform, writing sticker stories, etc. 

We are LOVIN' the Daily 5!
