|I prefer to introduce the Dailies in this order!|
|We have these three up and running so far!|
While we've been working on these 3 components, I've also started pre-teaching how to use our Word Work materials.Children have already been working with the following:
This way, when we begin practicing Word Work today, the students already know how to use the materials and where they belong so they can focus on the work they should be doing during WW time.
I've also been finding ways to sneak in time to begin meeting with groups and/or individuals. It is absolutely essential that we take the time to build our stamina and learn the right way to do our Daily 5... but I also am responsible for meeting with groups already. I've been able to pull one or two groups during a session of our Daily Five time, but right now, I'm also pulling groups at other "odd" times of the day just to squeeze them in. This way, it doesn't interfere with the important work kids are doing while they practice the Daily Five.
So, in a nutshell, that's where we currently stand! As it looks right now, I'm thinking we just might have all five pieces in place by the end of October. But only time will tell! :)
