Daily 5

Our Literacy Block 
Mini-Lessons - Daily 5 - Small Group Instruction
In third grade we will learn, practice, and improve our reading in many different ways.  First, in our  mini-lesson settings we will learn reading comprehension strategies, spelling words and grammar based off of our class read aloud texts as well as other print resources.  Next, in our Daily 5 experience we will be reading books that we call "Good Fit Books", books that are unique to each of us in our interests and abilities.  We will also be sharing and talking about what we are reading as well as applying the reading strategies we learned at mini lessons with our "Good Fit Books".  Finally, in small group instruction we will be with a small group of students working with Mrs. Streefland.  In this setting we will get individualized reading instruction.  We will practice ways to comprehend and understand, build reading fluency, and practice vocabulary strategies using a variety of print resources including poems, articles, digital stories, and chapter and picture books. 

Our "I Can" statements reflect our learning target for each day.
