Daily Five is by far a favorite in our class, primarily because of the choice it give students. When expert projects were introduced, at least 95% of the students jumped right in to a project. The freedom and variety that these projects offers is very appealing to them. Some students have already completed more than one!
Our first expert project is complete and ready to present! Jada has been in love with polar bears since we tuned in to Andy McKiel's Nanuq adventure. She has written stories, done research, written blog posts and now created a presentation. You can see more of Jada's work on her blog.
Katie did a great job of writing a speech with facts about her favourite animal, pandas, and using Power Point to accompany her presentation. Way to go Katie!
