This year we've introduced Daily 5 and I'm loving it. It's not perfection but I really enjoy it more than creating stations every other week. I was inspired to create a set of gameboards for my firsties to use during work on words. The gameboards are blank and my kiddos use dice, game markers, and their individualized word rings to play. Y'all they have been RUNNING to grab a gameboard when it's time for work on words!! In my previous post I talked about doing Abby's Oz unit...my Oz board was the first gameboard that I introduced to them. They fell in love and so did I. It was actually a word wall review week so I just plugged in our words for that six weeks and had an instant review game. Easy Peasy!! Just fabulous!!!
