The Daily Five: Where Are They Now? (Plus a Free Word Work Packet)

I'm a fan of HGTV's House Hunters.  I really like House Hunters International.  Most of those episodes really make me appreciate the size of my kitchen and closets.  House Hunters: Where Are They Now? gives you a chance to see what people did with their homes after they move in.
We are over half way through the school year and I thought I might do a little Daily Five: Where Are They Now? post about my Daily Five journey with my class and some changes I've had to make.

I am certainly not an expert on The Daily Five, but I have used it for more than a few years.  I figured if I have had some challenges, other teachers have too.
Here are some of the changes that have helped this year's group of students . . .

Below you will find a freebie packet I've put together for some of the paper assignments during Word Work.  You can use these activities even if you are not doing the Daily Five.

If you are interested in getting started with The Daily Five, be sure to read The Daily Five by Gail Boushey and Joan Moser and check out some of my other Daily Five posts.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week.


  1. Thanks for sharing your comments about Daily 5. It helped to validate my opinion that there are valuable elements to Daily 5, but as with any management system, it might need to be tweaked to meet the needs of your classroom and your personal teaching style. I have seen many of the same things in my first grade classroom and continue to refine this instructional time so it is most beneficial to the growth of my students. Keep it up!

  2. Love the freebies! Thanks!!

  3. A very projective thought and will certainly guides the professionals to get themselves into some touch also the remaining parts of the daily five will also encourage.
