This post is going to be a mash up of a few different topics, so sit back and enjoy the random :)
Today is a SNOW DAY here in North Texas, which is actually more like an ice day.
I implement the Daily Five in my classroom, but I have tweaked it a bit to suit my (and my students’) needs. I do a separate writing time, so instead of the Work on Writing portion of Daily Five, I have my students use reading response sheets. I didn’t start it until around February, so I didn’t get to start it up the way I really wanted to, but I do want to share with you a few reading response sheets that I have created for my littles to choose from.
Sometimes I tell them exactly what book they have to respond to, and sometimes I let them choose from their book boxes. They fill out the sheet, cut it out, and glue it into their reading response journals. The only thing they are allowed to copy from the book is the title. I quickly check it when the rotation is over.
