My week… in details!

Hey there!  So today was the 3rd day of school and it was fabulous!!  I can tell we are going to have a great year.  They know how to stand quietly, walk in a line, raise their hands, and they have all mastered writing their names!  I LOVE Kindergarten!  Shh! We better keep how fabulous it is a secret or the others will be trying to trade us! 🙂

It was totally my fault to give you plans without any details!  So, here it is really detailed…. you can skim and I won’t be offened! 🙂

7:55- Students come in the classroom, sit at thier tables, I call students over 2-3 at a time to give me their folder & put their backpacks away in the hallway.  I then quickly take attendence and lunch count {our students now have a choice for their lunch so this all new}

8:05- I call tables down to the carpet for Calendar.  We talk about the date, today, yesterday, tomorrow, weather, season, days in school {we keep straws, place value chart, and place fish into the fish bowl poster for days in school}.  We then sing the days of the week, months of the year, and the pledge.  I am eventually going to start the Calendar Books I purchased from Growing Kinders!

8:55-9:55 Daily 5- Reading Groups.  After Daily 5 is up and running I will be meeting with 4 reading groups each day at 12-14 minutes each.  Right now we are establishing Daily 5 Routines.  I am following the 5 week slow start to the Daily 5.  We will spend one week on each Daily 5’s {read to self, read to someone, work on writing, word work, and listen to reading}  We will continue to build stamina with read to self during each of the weeks.  Today we first talked about the 3 ways to read a book {read the pictures, read the words, ad
