Fountas and Pinnell/Daily 5
In 2/3 grade(s) we use the Fountas and Pinnell Reading System. Fountas and Pinnell is a guided reading program that matches students with their approriate level of reading based on running records and leveled books. I incorpoarte this system into the Daily 5 program by the 2 sisters. The Daily 5 is a rotational series in which students rotate every 15-20 minutes. The rotations include Meet with Teacher, Computers, Read to Self, Word Work, and Writing. Each students is placed in a group based upon their needs in reading/writing.
2nd and 3rd Graders are expected to write in different forms. We work on informative, narrative, and opinion pieces. We start from the base up working on correct sentence structures and building up to the correct way to write a paragraph.
