Daily Oral Language (DOL)
These are short activities used as warm-ups by many classrooms each day. In the Learning Center, when we do Daily Oral Language, I have the students do the activity on their own for 5 minutes (set a timer). Then we correct our answers together. Usually this takes another 5 minutes, but this is where the teachable moments are. If there is an opportunity to review a concept on the daily activity, I often take extra time to teach a mini-lesson on that particular topic (e.g. capitalization, punctuation, possessive nouns, contractions, commas).
I recommend only printing a few of these at a time. Maybe do 5 per week, one per day.
If your child has me as their teacher, I have their entire packet already printed and ready to go (except for first grade). If you are a first grade parent, I recommend printing the entire first file, then print a few pages each day for your child to work on. If your child is in 2nd through 5th grade and want to retrieve their packet, send me an e-mail and we can arrange a "porch pick up". I am attaching the DOL I have scanned on my computer here:
First Grade (Part A and Part B):
Have fun with your DOL!
