Something that made me feel really good today….

We had substitutes for half of the day today, while we had grade level planning.  We were looking at incorporating The Daily 5 into the structure of our Language Arts program.  For kindergarten, it’s kind of tough because at the beginning of the year, they really can’t do many of the things that they have to be able to do working independently.

In the meeting,  the literacy specialist mentioned how well the previous two years kids were doing or had done  in First Grade.  They were really positive about what we have been doing in kindergarten.    They said that only about 4 of the whole first grade  class didn’t make green on Dibels and that the kids from the last two years have been doing really well. 

If we are doing so well, why are we messing with the program?
