Of all the choices children participate in, Read to Someone is often their favorite. Reading with someone helps readers, especially developing readers, increase areas of comprehension, accuracy, fluency and prosidy. It also increases reading involvement, attention and collaboration.

"The writing component of the Daily 5™ provides additional support children require to become effective writers. Its purpose is to provide daily writing practice."
During the Word Work time, students experiment with spelling patterns, memorize high-frequency words, and develop a genuine curiosity and interest in new and unique words. By playing with words, word patterns, word families, prefixes, suffixes, and so on, students hone their knowledge of words and increase their writing skills.
Children reading to themselves is the first of the Daily 5 choices to be launched and is the foundation for creating independent readers and writers.
Textual evidence is evidence from a text (fiction or nonfiction) that you can use to illustrate your ideas and support your arguments. All textual evidence should: Support a specific point.

Kinders are at the beginning stages of Daily 5 and Daily 3 (for Math). More information about this structure in future posts. Ask your Kinder which choices they made during Daily 5 or Daily 3 today!
