9:15-9:45 Daily 5 Read to Someone or CATCH UP time from the week

Please work on your Habitat Report during this Daily 5 time.  See link for all the videos to help you! Habitat Report Lessons/Videos


This is a fun time to “Face time” a classmate or family member and read together.  You can choose from the following ways to read to someone:

1-Check for understanding.  You share one book and take turns reading it.  One reads a page or two and when he is finished the other person “checks for understanding”.  This means you retell what happened in the story (who, what, where).  Then the other person reads a page or two…

  1. Fluency Practice: If you have older brothers or sisters, this might be the choice for you.  One reads a page out loud showing good fluency (taking breaks for periods, commas, using voice).  The other then reads the same page.
  2. Read 2 different Books: This is perfect if you are facetiming a friend or family member. You both get out good fit books and take turns reading a page or two of your own book.


No reading assignments today!


Break:  Go outside, exercise, or dance!
