A walk as Curriculum Leader

Today I got to walk in and out of classrooms wearing my 'Curriculum Leader' hat.

It is such a privilege to do this and be treated like a rock star in the One/Two building. I have taught most of these kids and they love showing me what they are up to and how much they have learnt since we have worked together. 

We are using Daily 5 from P-6 and this was an opportunity to see our Preps (they have been at school for 8 weeks or 35 days) - they are all over 'read to self' and 'read to someone'.

They have been learning how to use their take home books as best fit books. 

During this time I saw teachers working with a student one on one and tracking their progress. 
Such a powerful way to work. 
They can do this as these students are already showing great stamina and independent work habits. 

'Read to Someone' is happening very well - a credit to our amazing teachers.

EEKK - eye tracking - one book at a time........asking questions, helping each other.......


  1. Aw Paula, what a great day it would have been. I would love some advice (even though I only have 2 more days at school) but I just can't get my kids above 5 minutes for reading stamina - We have an alphabet chart, magic words, books we have made and readers in their book boxes - what I am doing wrong?

  2. Hi Paula,

    Inspired by you I am going to have a crack at Daily 5 next term....!


    Love, Laughter and Learning in Prep!

  3. Hi Paula,
    I love seeing Daily 5 in action anywhere. I'm in my second year of the Daily 5 adventure in Year 3 and cannot imagine life in the classroom without it.
