I've been working with the Daily 5 for several years as a coach helping teachers. I understand how to fit most things in such as phonics, writing, spelling/printing, comprehension, etc. but I struggle when teachers ask me 1) How can they fit this all into the Daily 5 and still have time to teach other subjects and, 2) where/when do I teach my ELA required units. In Saskatchewan, we need to have 560 minutes of ELA/week which is about 112min per day. We are required to teach the following units...
EX. Grade 3 -Type of Units / Number of Units per Year
3 Multi-genre Thematic Units
Multi-genre Inquiry and/or Interdisciplinary (1 minimum)
Author or Genre Study 1 (maximum)
These units need to cover the following contexts: Personal/Philisophical (Ex. topics: making choices, all about me), Social/Cultural/Historical (ex. communities, responsibility), Imaginative/Literary (ex. genre studies), Communicative (ex. advertising), environmental/technological (ex. respecting nature, multi-media).
Thanks for any and all suggestions.
