I hope you all are enjoying a summer break that will help you feel rejuvenated for the upcoming school year! I'm finally ready to start thinking about my classroom (like that ever really stops). Last year I took a leap into Daily 5 and loved it! I know with one year under my belt, this year will be even better and I'm going to take it a step further and incorporate CAFE. This authentic practice of reading skills and strategies is something I've been searching for and I am so excited we teachers have the support of our administrators.
As we head back to our sweltering classrooms to organize our chaos, remember to start with one task at a time so we aren't absolutely frazzeled by meet the teacher night :).
