Happy summer everyone! Mine is winding down and I am getting ready to present at our school system's annual reading and math conference. I will be sharing about The Daily Five. My presentation focuses on the recommendations made by authors Gail Boushey and Joan Moser in their book The Daily Five.
However, I have had to make a few adjustments to some of these recommendations so that this literacy structure can work in my classroom. I think the mark of a good program is that there is some room for flexibility and personal touches. From my experience, The Daily Five does offer that flexibility.
If you are launching The Daily Five, I have created a set of mini books to support student learning of procedures. These mini books mirror the language I use on my I charts. I plan to use them as I introduce each component of The Daily Five or use them as review (if and when students need a refresher on expectations). If you are interested, click on one of the pics to find out more information.
Have a great week!
