Good teachers are in a continual state of reflection. In this video, Katie, a second year teacher, reflects on her first year of teaching with Daily 5 and CAFE with third graders and what she wants to tweak after her experience, especially since she has moved to first grade. She talks about pre-teaching foundation lessons in order to introduce all the choices sooner.
Joan gave Katie this foundation chart sample, which serves as a lesson plan of sorts, helping us remember the foundation lessons as we introduce Daily 5 and CAFE. We will be touching base with Katie further into the year to hear how it is going.
