Listen to Reading
So I broke down this year and jumped on the Daily 5 bandwagon. I have to admit I was
reluctant terrified because it seemed like it was going to be boring. I mean, five centers day in and day out? Well, I am so glad that I made the switch. At winter testing my students had grown so much with their reading. I don't think their is one component of the Daily 5 that is more important but this one is my favorite. I am fortunate to have five student computers in my classroom so when my students do Listen to Reading they do it on a computer. All I did was bookmark some websites that offered stories being read and trained the kids how to find them in the favorites. It's a hit! I'm going to share with you a list of those websites. Some are subscription based, but I have found that I can actually do a Google search and find passwords that public libraries or school districts have posted on their websites. Kinda sneaky resourceful, isn't it?
