This year, I am incorporating some technology into my Daily 3. The students love using the iPad and our class blog. My challenge was to come up with a system so students could easily see whose turn it is. I have two language arts classes, one iPad, and four computers available for blogging. This is the system I came up with.
Students move their clip to the next available number after they have finished their blog post. I have 1-3 students use the iPad each day, depending on what else we have to accomplish.
I made a set of synonym rings for each student. They attached them to their desks for a most convenient resource. These are from Joanne at Head Over Heels for Teaching.
Ever since I started blogging, I have become overwhelmed, but in a good way. I am so amazed by all the great ideas out there. However, I was having a little trouble keeping track of everything I wanted to do, books I wanted to order, projects I wanted to tackle, etc. I decided I needed a binder to help me stay organized with this. I always want to make sure I credit original sources! Anyway, here are the pages I created.
(Of course, I had to make the pages match my blog. I just love the "Spring has Sprung" collection from MyClipArtStore.)
I put together two syllable centers. The first one is for practicing open and closed syllables. I blogged about this, as well as other open and closed syllable resources, here.
The second set of centers is for practice with open, closed, and silent e syllables. I will blog about this one, as well as other resources, later this week.
That's all for me this month. I'm off to check out all of the other awesome Made Its.
Thank you, and have a great week!
