I think I have solved my Daily 5 dilemma from yesterday! I have tweaked it a little to suit my 6th grade classroom/time constraints, etc,etc,etc,etc (aren’t there so many etcs in our lives???). 🙂
I am renaming mine “Fab Five” mainly because we won’t have time to do EVERYTHING on a daily basis. So, my students will still have choices (most important thing), but they will have all week to complete them with the exception of Read to Self-this will me a MUST for each day.
We will only do 2 rounds of CAFE/Fab Five each day-yet another because-because I have to/want to:
1. Teach English
2. Teach Writing separately
3. Teach whole group reading-gonna try and limit this to 15-20 minutes each day since I KNOW that small group/individual instruction is the bomb!
4. I still want to do an interactive read aloud (chapter book) each day
I AM SO HAPPY!!! :):) I am one step closer to organizing this chaotic mind of mine!
I created the “Fab Five” posters to put on my bulletin board in power point. Here is the link to the actual power point file in case you want to edit and use for your classroom.
Here is the pdf file that I converted the presentation to.
