Daily 5 is a part of our class routine and is organized to help students improve their literacy skills in both reading and writing. Since the beginning of the school year we have been practising each station. Students have now built up their stamina and are able to work for 15 minutes on the task they chose.
Our stations include:
Read to self – students practice reading silently individually
Read to someone – students read with a partner
Work with Words – students play word games to help them practise their power words (they love power word tic-tac-toe)
Work with media – students have the opportunity to work on HeadSprout or log into Epic books and have stories read aloud
Work on writing – students practise their writing with various activities
