Daily 5

Hi Friends,
I have been busy working on daily 5 in my class. I have attempted to implement daily 5 two years in a a row, and I normally return to stations. Although I love the Sisters concept, it just never works for me However, this year I have found a way to make it work for me and my kids. Yes!!!!!!! So I wanted to share just in case anyone else has struggled with implementing the Daily 5. I only do three rotations a day, however in between each rotation is either out word study block, read aloud, or shared reading block. I teach the lessons students do the assignment, and then we go back to Daily 5 rotations. Each time I send them back they seem more focused, and when they start getting off task its usually just about time to bring them back. So, I love it, and it is working like a charm with 32 First Graders!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
