The Daily 5--Read to Self

As a teacher, I must remember three aspects of the chapter:

  1. Model, model, and model!
  2. Think a-louds
  3. Take things slow and steady.
I felt the chapter focused on the skills of reading to self.

 So I made up this little movie poster show "how we read".

Of course I would also make anchor posters.

A picture of a movie ticket and popcorn: how do we read: read pictures, read words, retell the story.
Daily 5: Three ways to read.

Then I would talk about the purpose of reading.  These are some of the reason I like to read.

A picture of a movie ticket and popcorn.  Why do I read: I read to cook, have fun, and to learn.
Daily 5: Why I read.
In conclusion, I want to share this quote from page 47:
"The tone for the entire year is established during the early weeks of school. When we take our time during this critically important period, moving slowly and thoughtfully to build a solid foundation, it pays off all year long."

What are some of the reasons you like to read?
