Today in writing workshop we learned about how to to label our picture. The way to really make it a memorable lesson I let the student label me! They love it and it becomes something they always remember how to do! Here is a picture of just a few of my labels.

Today was our first day in our "daily 5" centers. Daily 5 is a literacy program that encourages reading in a variety of ways to meet each students learning needs and style.
In the beginning it looks more like play but as the children grow as readers and writers so will the activities in each group.
Here are some pictures from today. This week is mostly focused on procedure and getting excited about the activities.
Working on Writing
Listen To Reading
Work with Words
Read with Someone
Here student practice reading to a buddy.
Typically I have a work on Math Center as my last one. This sensory table however is always a class favorite.
This center builds math and science skills but also develops responsibility with the job of cleaning up after.
We are off to a great start and I can't wait to add different activities each week. The kids really did a great job on day one!
