In The Doghouse, we use Daily 5 during our Reading Workshop. The biggest part of the Daily 5 is called "Read to Self". This is the time of our day when kids read independently to practice reading skills we are working on. The first day we did Read to Self, we read for about 8 minutes without needing a break. We have been working on our stamina (doing something well for a long period of time without stopping for a break). Today, we read for 20 minutes straight! YAHOO!!!! I am proud of these Top Dogs! Here are a few pictures of Read to Self in our classroom. We will read in cozy Book Nooks around the room very soon!
