So over the past two weeks I attended several different teacher trainings in preparation of my district's switch to Common Core next year. While at these trainings, I really started to get excited/nervous about the new school year. I just cannot believe how quickly summer seems to be going by. I had so much to get done that I haven't seemed to accomplish yet and now I have even more to add onto the list....eek!
I just found out at these trainings that our district is moving us towards using Daily 5 in our literacy block for center time. I have seen such awesome ideas all over blogs and Pinterest that I haven't pinned or followed to closely since I didn't realize that we were going to be implementing it! I am now on a mad dash to find as much information and resources as possible. Of course my first step was to try to hunt down the book, after going to and calling several bookstores I think I finally have a lead! Of course I could have ordered it online, but I am rather impatient and "I want it now!" (Think Veruca Salt in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory...)
So of course tonight, I logged onto Pinterest and started scrolling through blogs and as usual my quick 10 minute peek has turned into an hour plus spent looking over all the wonderful ideas. Does anyone have any wonderful suggestions/ideas about implementing it? I am super excited and can't wait to continue my search for my help and resources tomorrow.
