Daily Five Song ! :)

Hello Everyone!
It is not a secret that I love the Two Sisters Daily Five set up for my literacy block.  It is my goal this summer to share some of my organizational strategies that I have found to be successful with my firsties.  One of my favs is our Daily Five Song.  I use this to get kids going on their dailies.  By the time we're finished singing the song, each kiddo should be settled in and ready to begin their first Daily, or transitioning to the next choice.   After learning the words and adding the poem to our poetry folders, transitions are a breeze! As we get into the routine of things, sometimes we even just hum the tune (The Ants Go Marching).  It works!  Stay tuned for more!

Let's get reading!
Joyfully!
Nancy
