I loved read to self. I did this and literacy centers last year. I've been trying to decide what I wanted to do next year. I love the idea of Daily 5 but I'm not sure I can give up the control. I've been going round and round with myself. The truth of the matter is I hate trying to come up with centers every week. It's hard for me to get my act together. I've been trying to figure out where my technology centers that I've worked on come into play too. I guess that I can use them as listen to reading or word work choices. This choice business is hard for me. I want to give my kids choice but I want them to be accountable for their choices too.
So who has some solutions for me? Does anyone use the checklists I see all over pinterest for keeping up with daily 5? Then I think of using a clip chart kind of system for the different parts of Daily 5. I think I've seen these on Mel from Seusstasic Classroom Inspiration who does this. I'm linking up with Jennifer at First Grade Blue Skies. Be sure to check out everyone else's thoughts on Daily 5.
I guess I have rambled about not much of anything long enough. I hope to link up with 4th Grade Frolics for Made it Monday tomorrow. I'm not quite finished with my projects plus the trip to Hobby Lobby might have added a couple of new projects. So be sure to check back with me. Plus I'm only like 20 followers away from 400 and my 1 year blogiversary is coming up. Hopefully I can get a big giveaway together.
