I don't know if I have mentioned before that I teach in a year round school. The schedule is awesome...we work 9 weeks, then we go on break for 3 weeks...it is lovely! Just when you think you can't do it any longer...BAM!!! There comes the break! So anyways\, my schedule is a little different and because of that I have been with 24 amazing first graders since July 23. In my district The Daily 5 is an expectation, and even though I am NOT the kind of professional that "buys" into something 100%, I do like a lot of the Daily 5 components. So I am here to show you how I set up my word work area in my lovely little classroom. I really don't have anything spiffy-color coded-chevron to show you. I do like cutesy stuff, I do, but I like intentional-meaningful-creative-practical stuff more.
So this is how I did it. Nothing fancy, just easy for my students to have access to.
