The Daily 5™ is a structure that helps students develop the daily habits of reading, writing, and working independently that will lead to a lifetime of literacy independence.
The students have been building their stamina in each of the areas that comprise the Daily Five habits.
One of the areas is 'Word Work' and the two kiddos above are working on strengthening their sight word vocabulary.
'Read to Self' is another part of Daily Five as is
'Work on Writing", and
"Listen to Reading'.
Because we have a government defined amount of time for language learning, the 'Read to Others' component is practised nightly through the home reading program.
Our class did an honourable job of bringing the focus of Remembrance Day alive to our schoolmates during the Wednesday morning assembly this week. Different students offered words from the Bible, and individual prayers and the whole class presented an interpretation of 'In Flanders Field' Sadly, I was too busy leading to be able to take photos to share. You would have been proud!
Through a watercolour painting, the idea originating from That Artist Woman website, the students also created a display outside of the classroom, remembering those who lay in the grave sites in Europe, having given their lives for our freedom.
Enjoy the fall break!
