Happy September!!! Can you feel fall in the air?? HA...it is a balmy 97 degrees in Bama! CAN'T WAIT for all things fall....apples, pumpkins, and leaves, oh my! I stopped at Bath and Body Works to get some hand soap and left an hour later with a MASSIVE headache because I sniffed all the new fall scents...Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin is still my absolute fave! :)
Let's talk Daily Five! How is it going??? We have built our stamina to 13 minutes for Read to Self (so I am FINALLY able to begin assessing) and 9 minutes for Work on Writing. We introduced Read to Someone this week and it is going great! We are up to 6 minutes!
This is our what our Daily Five time looks like currently ~

13 minutes - Read to Self

9 minutes - Work on Writing
5 minutes - add to Work on Writing stamina chart and review Read to Someone chart
