When planning for the first week of school, be sure to include The Big Three mini lessons: Three Ways to Read a Book, Where to Sit in the Room, and How to Choose Good Fit Books. With The Daily Five, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Thoughtful lessons and organization during the onset will pay off over the course of the year.
