Making the Daily 5 my OWN!

Now I know lots of you are doing the Daily 5 in your classroom. I dabbled in it a bit last year and loved it. This year I wanted to make it my own! We have a difficult time in our building implementing structured frameworks into our day because our classroom schedule is set for us. We have to find a way to make everything fit into a preset day.

I struggled at first because I knew that I wanted to teach mini lessons in all areas and then find a way for my students to work on skills from our mini lessons. I started out with a pocket chart and the students signed up for five centers. Independent Reading, Word Study, Buddy Reading, Writing Station, and Listening to Reading. Now this was all great but I still was not getting the connections from the mini lessons to the work in centers by my students. Yeah, they were going to centers and working but not connecting.
