To address some of these questions, I have a few books lined up for summer reading. Last summer's reading included the updated edition of The Daily 5.
If you are considering implementing The Daily 5 in your class or if you have been using it for a while, you should read the second edition of this book. It has some great reminders and some changes to make this literacy structure more user friendly. (Spoiler alert) Plus there is a chapter devoted to Math Daily 3.
If you are interested, I'd like to share a breakdown of The Daily Five Second Edition and some personal insights in a three part series. Part 1 focuses on Daily 5 updates, core beliefs, and 10 steps to independence.
There is quite a bit of information in the first portion of the book. These beginning chapters outline the reasons The Daily 5 is an effective literacy model. They also lay the groundwork for the detailed implementation process explained in the upcoming chapters.
Be sure to visit again soon. Part 2 of this series will cover what you will need for The Daily 5 and the first days of The Daily 5 (also know as The Launch).
