Back to School

I started my third year teaching Kindergarten this past week.  It is great to be back in the classroom but I do miss summer and days spent at the pool.  This week we did a lot of get to know you activities.  We also started Daily 5.  I am so excited about Daily 5 and can't wait to see how it transforms my class.  We began by introducing 3 ways to reading.  My students had a difficult time coming up with the three ways to read but after some modeling they were ready to go.  Then talked about Read to Self.  We started by creating our I chart and modeling what Read to Self should look like and what it should not look like.  After we had a good idea of what we were supposed to do we started working on our stamina.  They did a great job!  I can't wait to see how next week goes. Here are some pictures of my students doing Read to Self.
