The Daily 5

This term we have been learning about the DAILY 5.

We have learnt about the first activity, Read to Self.
We learnt that we need to continually build our stamina when reading to ensure we are about to read for an extended period of time without distractions.
We now know how to put a good fit book. If we do this the books we borrow won’t be too easy or too hard – they will be just right!

Human Rights

As part of this term, we took a look at Human Rights. After reading the book ‘We Are All Born Free’ which was written in association with Amnesty International. Our teachers,who went through the trouble of printing out the rights as two books, for each class.

Here are some of the many fabulous drawings that we drew. Proudly presented by both 5/6MA and 5/6WM.

Our Daily Literacy Rotations

This term, 5/6MA and 5/6WM have been working closely together. We have been following a program called ‘The Daily 5’ and have made it our own to suit our needs and the time we have. We complete four activities each time we complete our rotations. The activities are: Read to Self, Read to Another, Spelling and Writing. We choose in which order we complete the activities and choose what we do in spelling and writing based on the goals we have set for ourselves earlier in the year. Mrs Watkins and Mrs Mahney work with us based on our needs while we are all busy working.

What are you liking about the program and/or what would you change? Which of the four activities is your favourite/least favourite and why?

Please share you thoughts and ideas.
