I found this yesterday and thought Mrs Molinaro and I could not have said it better. Have a read.
The Year 3’s have started Cafe literacy and the Daily 5 this year. Our CAFE wall displays the four strategies we will focus on- Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, and Expanding Vocabulary. As we learn skills for each strategy, we add them to our wall. This serves as a reminder to the students that it is important to use comprehension strategies in becoming exceptional readers!
The Daily 5 consists of five key elements: Read to Self, Read to Someone, Listen to Reading, Word work/Spelling and a teacher focus group. Each of these elements allow the students to work towards becoming confident independent readers.
Welcome to Year 3. We have such an exciting year ahead of us. Throughout the year we will be using the blog for many different things. Our blog will provide you with information regarding what we have been doing in class, games and activities for you to try, homework tasks and much more. Make sure you check out the pages regularly to keep up to date.
We look forward to spending this year with you.
Mrs Molinaro and Mrs Bowman
