My Students

Knowing the amount of energy my first graders have, I need to be prepared to keep their minds busy while also teaching them the ways to become independent readers and writers.

Students at our school enter the doors knowing they are safe.

They are full of curiosity, as well as energy. They want to be heard and have fun! What better way to feed curiosity, be heard, and have fun than with the wonderful world of reading and writing!

First grade is where all this fun literacy action goes down! I recently went to a K-2 Summer Institute and was so inspired by the Daily 5 session by Kindergarten pro Katie Friedl. She shed a new light on what Daily 5 really is. Daily 5's goals are to promote lifelong independent readers and writers!

For me, in order to get this off the ground and running from the beginning, these materials are essential and the basis for all five components: read to self, read to someone, listen to reading, word work, and writing. A beautiful, bright new carpet. Bright, quality book boxes and supply caddies. A working listening center. I see a COMMUNITY of learners!

My Project

Daily 5 is a literacy program that promotes independent reading and writing through five key rotations during the reading block.

To effectively achieve this independence, students need the right materials.

Each student needs a book box that they will use all year during their reading tasks. They will read independently and build reading fluency and stamina. Our classroom also needs supply caddies to properly manage group supplies. In addition, I would love to start the year off with a new, clean rug so they may enjoy the classroom library and many lessons of all subjects. The listening center cannot exist without the proper adapter to hook up a half dozen headphones to one boombox.
