I was asked about my ELA choice board a few time on my Instagram so I decided to share with you what I have been doing during daily five these days!
students boys weren't finishing their work. It was a battle because they would get into a book and not want to stop reading. As much as I LOVE that, they had other things that needed to be finished as well. Because I am pulling small groups, I don't have the time to micro manage my groups. I teach an advanced group of first graders, and they should be able to get their groups completed by the end of the week. Another setback I had is that my gifted students are pulled one day a week and miss all of their daily five time. I also realized my students didn't have time to find books in the library and get back in time, after taking an A.R. test.
The best thing I could come up with was a must do/ may do system. Students have to finish their must do's before they begin the may do's.
We rotate to three-four groups each day, depending on the day. Students still complete their word work, read to self, and read to partner.
These beads are one of the students' favorites to practice their word work on!
