Daily 5 literacy and Daily 5 math

Daily 5 at it's best!!!!

The kids have been working really hard on their work stamina.  I have now introduced "Read to Self", "Word Work", "Listen to a Story",  and our latest and greatest, "Work on Writing".  During work on writing, the kids are able to make a card.  Next week I will introduce List Writing.  We have been busy learning about our lively letters.  So far, I have introduced p/b, t/d, f/v and k/g.  Ask your son or daughter about these letter characters and see if he/ she is able to tell you the letter story..  This week we have been working with syllables.  We counted how many syllables we had in our name and we also talked about how syllables are different than letters.  Next week we will dive into Rhyming.  In math, we have begun the process of learning Daily 5 math.  Each child has a "Math Game Binder".  The 5 choices they have for math are; number games, fact games, paper and pencil, math tools and strategy games.  So far we have only learned about math tools, number games, fact games, and paper and pencil.  So, here are some pictures of the kids hard at work

Letter Work on the Interactive Whiteboard

Here is a jpeg of the interactive board I created using Boardmaker Plus.  We are currently working on letter-sound knowledge.  This was used as a whole group mini-lesson.  Each child got a change to come up to the board and drag a picture to the correct sorting area.  When the children touched each picture, it labeled the name of the picture.  If they touched the p or the b, it gave the sound.  They did an awesome job!

Here are two more "paper and pencil" math activities.  Enjoy.
