Throwback Thursday - a linkup post

The idea of this linky is to repost a favourite post and link back to the blog 2nd Grade Shenanigans

I have chosen a post from 28th August 2013.
It is about planning for Daily 5 and how we did this last year. 
I have moved to Year 5/6 this year and while we do Daily 5 our planning is different to this



Here is the throwback post.......

I have been asked to share the planning for Daily 5 that is used in my learning space.
The four teachers who share this space (yes - we have 4 grades and 4 teachers working very closely together). This means two of us plan Maths and two of us plan English. Our planning has evolved over time and this is what the planning looks like for my grade and the grade I team teach with for Daily 5.  


So here are the explanations of each section
1 - Contains our Reading focus - Learning Intention, Success Criteria and Café Strategy. At the bottom of this column are the foci for Letters/sounds, Shared Books/Big Books and Explicit Writing Focus.
2. Writing Focus - similar to format of the Reading Focus
3. This is our timing and is in the same format as an anchor chart. One column is what the students do and the other is what we do!
4. Now there are two of them - each one represents a teacher in the space. If I am the first column - I work with the groups on that side this week and then next week I work with the other side. This column also contains the names of students who are at the same reading level.(Guided Reading group)
5. Tells us what day we see the group - the title of the book and the focus for the guided reading task

Teacher Focus –Wed
Book –The Hungry Kitten
Focus Read across the word and get your mouth ready
6. Are the icons to show what order their tasks are (Scrappin Doodles). We also have posters around the room to show what and where they need to be,
7. The tasks for each group for Writing
8. The tasks for each group for Word Work
9. Suggested stories for Listen To Reading
10. Notes pages for Reading
11. Notes pages for Writing

As a team we then copy  the notes pages on Friday and pass them on to the relevant teacher.


Hope this has helped to explain how we plan.
