I posted about the Daily 5 book study yesterday, but I have been thinking a bit more.
I modified the Personal Goals Chart chart from Teaching With Style. Since I am moving to third grade, I am starting fresh.

For example, I NEVER did listening centers with 3rd and 4th graders. Now I think they need that. I did a lot of worksheet assignments and there was little independence or differentiation. I know that I want to include hands on activities, listening, and reader response. I need to take more time this summer to think about it. Here is what I am thinking so far:
I love hearing what others are doing and finding out more about the procedures, routines, and general tone of how this works in third grade!
