Daily 5 Literacy Centers - to encourage independent inquiry, reading, and writing activities!
Listen to Reading/ Inquiry/ ResearchEveryday the students are encouraged to research something new!!!! We use www.pebblego.com to listen to information about whatever we are curious about. We record our information in our inquiry journal.
Read to Self/ Someone
We enjoy a few minutes to read to our self and a buddy everyday. We can choose a just right book and spend a few minutes learning to love reading!!!
Work on Writing -
Big BOOKS, Mini books, Flap books, and Scrolls!!! OH MY!!!!
As part of our Units of Inquiry we are learning how to share our information by making a variety of books and writing scrolls. The children LOVE making flip books, pop up books, scrolls, and other fun ways to share their information!!!! If you are able, we would greatly appreciate any paper that you would like to donate! Thank you for encouraging our inquiring minds to share information in creative ways!
Work on Words-
Students participate in a variety of activities to practice phonics skills and build reading fluency.
At the end of each center time, someone gets to share their work with the whole group. They call on their classmates to critique their work. They are given 3 stars (3 things that are done well) and a wish (1 thing to work on for next time).
Thank you for all of your continued support and resources to help stock our classroom with some fabulous STEM supplies!!! :0)
