It's the MOST WONDERFUL time of the year!! We are switching up our literature circle for the month of Dec. as we indulge in some favorite Christmas stories. We continue our literacy strategies, Making Connections, Asking Questions and Predicting in our Reader's Notebooks. We also continue the CAFE menu and Daily 5 workstations! We are so excited about the huge gains the students had on their recent MAP Reading test!!! So we've updated all of our Daily 5 stations and groups have changed to reflect this new growth!!
