The Daily 3

This week we have finally begun the Daily 3 in the classroom. The Daily 3 involves us working in groups and undertaking different activities for 20 minutes each.

The activities include:

Word Work- completing our spelling contract for the week.

Work on Writing- working in the pods and commenting on a post on our class blog.

Read to Self – finding a comfortable and relaxing place in the room to read silently.


Before we started we discussed why each of these activities are important to us. We then brainstormed the correct behaviours to have while we are doing each task. Here are the ideas we came up with:

 Read to Self

Why do we do this? 

easy to do

learn about topics


enjoyment, relaxation

help you write and spell

Students Will

sit or lay quietly

on task

not disturbing others

eyes on the book



Word Work

 Why do we do this?

practise spelling

improve spelling

help with writing

help us read

for fun

 Students Will

focus on work

work calmly and quietly

follow instructions

not disturb others


Work on Writing

Why do we do this?

to help with spelling

become neat writers

help us hold our pencils

use our imaginations

it is fun

Students Will

Write appropriate ideas

eyes on the computer screen

sit in the chair and work quietly

only go onto the class blog site

try our best

respect the equipment



Mrs Baldwin was very impressed with how everyone worked for the first time during the Daily 3.

  1. Dear miss baldwin i have been looking forward to doing daily 3 because i injoy doing spelling because i want to get smarter and learn more . i think its important to do spelling and writing because you can get more better from jessica m.

  2. Dear Mrs Baldwin I enjoy work on writing the blog because you get to type which I’m really good at and you can see what others have wrote.

    I think it is important so that in the future you can sign stuff and so that you can read stuff because if you can’t read you won’t get very far and if you can’t write that bad too

    so you don’t get told off or get a negative on class dojo also because it will disturb other classes while they are working.

  4. Dear Mrs Baldwin, The activity I like the most in the daily three is word work because we can write comments and reply to other people comments. It’s important to know how write and spell so when you work in a business you will need to know how to read and write. You need to be on the correct behaviour so you get everything done.

    I think that read to self is the best activity because it is a chance in school hours to read.I recomend the Rangers Apprentice series or I Can Jump Puddles the Rangers Apprentice series is by John Flanigan and I Can Jump puddles is by Alan Marshall

    I think spelling and writing is important because it will help you understand and help you sound out words you don’t know.
    I think that correcting behaviour is good because it will quicken their work and others.

  9. Dear mrs baldwin

    I enjoy word work because I like spelling. What is important about spelling and writing is that when your typing and you dont know how to spell a word so you have to look it up. If you dont do the right thing you will lose dojo points and if you lose dojo points your parents will see.
