FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Read to Self (Silent Reading) Lesson, PPt, and all Daily 5 Separately”

by Wise Owl Factory
Pre-Kindergarten - 2nd Grade

Read to Self (Silent Reading) Lesson, PPt, and all Daily 5 Literacy Tasks

Zip Folder of all 5 Power Point Lessons

These lessons help a class increase silent reading time by building reading stamina, and also learn about all five DAILY 5 literacy tasks:
*read to self 
*read to another
*listen to reading
*writing work
*word work 
This is a zip file. Zip folders do NOT need special software, just pull the files out to use. SEE ALSO: DAILY 5 Notebook File for Smart Boards 

THE DAILY 5, by Gail Boushey & Joan Moser, was written because they feel teaching should not be exhausting. By training children in literacy tasks, they feel students learn habits that help them achieve independence in literacy. Use of the lesson assumes access to the book, THE DAILY 5, for background information. Several slides are to be completed by the teacher and class as they reflect on their read to self sessions. Building stamina in reading and literacy tasks is a big part of the Daily 5. The graphics are licensed through The Graphics Factory. Permission for teachers to adapt as needed for their own classrooms.

  2. Elizabeth,
    Your "Fun in Room 4B" has so many great ideas! I especially like the "5% Added Back to a Test Grade" coupon. Just like you, I will include it in my Christmas gifts to my students next year.
    I hope you are enjoying your vacation,
