We have begun to learn about Daily 5. It is a language arts program that gives the students the opportunity to practice their skills independently. The first of the 5 is Read To Self. The kids are taught to choose good fit books and build their reading stamina by engaging in reading by themselves. We are up to 9 minutes of sustained reading right now. During this Daily 5 time the teacher works with small groups and individuals on reading and writing skills. Our next endeavour will be learning how to do Read to Someone. We are very excited!
