Big Day in First Grade!

Today we practiced the very last part of our Daily 5 -- Listen To Reading! Students learned how to use our 2 iPod Touches to listen to stories recorded by Mrs. Mathes. During Listen To Reading, students can choose to use the iPod Touch to listen to stories, or get on the computer and listen to Tumblebooks. Listening to reading will help students build fluency and vocabulary!

So we've learned all of the Daily 5 -- Read to Self, Read to Someone, Work on Writing, Word Work, and now Listen to Reading. Next week, students will get to choose which Daily 5 they want to work on each day. We are ALL excited! 

Parents, you should be so proud of your first grader, they have built up their stamina in all areas, are engaged in meaningful literacy tasks, and coach each other using reading strategies. All in the first full month of school. WOWIE!
