I had to get something up on those boards.
I am going to try the Daily 5 this year. Want to hear my reasons? Okay, here it goes.
I am just a tad bit of a control freak. I like for my kids to do the activities that I want them to do- in the exact amount of time that I give them- meeting my high expectations.
Doesn't always work out that way does it?? In fact, now that I read over that sentence, it really makes me sound like a brat.
This year- my goal is to let go a little bit. Math Work Stations started me down that path- now I just need to give it my all. I feel like the Daily 5 will allow my kids to work at their own pace and on their own level in a much more manageable way.
What is the first thing that I do to get ready for the Daily 5?
Make 2 new pretty displays. Apparently it is all about my room right now :)
click the images to download
Want to see them in my room??? Well of course you do!
Love, love, love my additions of purple this year.
I also decided to do a smaller clipchart. In order to keep track of my kids, I will have them clip their names on this chart!
Yes, I included the smaller version in the download too!
And because I love you all... here is another version.
And last but not least...go check out Kelley's idea. I can't wait to see how excited my kids will get when they get REAL mail from California!
