So many teachers have the goal of integrating Daily 5 into their classrooms this year. While I don't follow it to the letter, I feel like I could be making better use of it in my centers. I use centers HEAVILY during Language Arts time, so I'm excited to do this.
I came up with an activity to help students "collect" interesting words while independently reading. The top words are then added to a class "word wall." It combines the Daily 5 goals of "Expand Vocabulary/Word Work," "Accuracy" and "Read to Self."
