Alright, so I am ECSTATIC to announce that in the beginning of June I got to attend a Daily 5 conference from The 2 Sisters in Charlotte, NC!
My principal sent my two favorite teachers and me for two days! We got to go to Daily 5 AND Cafe! It was seriously so great! I learned a TON, and it really reminded me why I wanted to be a teacher in the first place! The Sisters were so inspiring and down to earth! I could go on and on! Let's just say that the conference was well worth it!
I went into the conference with very limited knowledge on Daily 5 and Cafe. I attempted to bust out the first book The Daily 5 on the plane to NC. I didn't get very far, however, and decided that I would probably learn just as much at the conference as I would have reading the book... And learn much I did. And we even got two little workbooks during the conference that held all the most recent theories and practices that The Sisters had to offer.
Oh, and did I mention? They gave out a bunch of freebees too! My favorite little gift was a set of wind chimes! I will hang them up from the ceiling and use them to signal when to regroup to discuss and reflect between dailies. This was the first gift we got, and people went nuts! I swear, it felt like an episode of Oprah's Favorite Things!
Well I am so inspired by what I learned so I am giddy to get into my new classroom and start setting up. A lot more to come soon!
