Daily Five Efforts

Well, this is my first year working on Daily 5 in any way, shape, or form.  Our school is in efforts of learning about and implementing ideas from D5 and CAFE.  So, I am trying to get it going in a way that works for me.  Here is the anchor wall that I have completed with my students.  

The kids are building stamina and working toward a few goals.  I am working toward goals as well.  I would like to be able to get to the point of the 5, where I am effectively using the CAFE as well.  I am not doing the true/real CAFE yet.  I assess, take notes, do a variety of checks, but not in the way that CAFE has set up.  I will get there near the end of this month I think.  I'm working on it.  Slow and Steady...

The Daily 5 title posters are from Amy Marshall at The Resource(ful) Room.  The larger posters are from Tracy Tegler at Creekside Teacher Tales.

So now, on to a linky.  Helpful Hints the pic to join in on the fun.


Yesterday, I had a Read the Room freebie connected to my "trick-or-treat" from the Currently I had completed.  I realized at school that when copied on the copy machine, it looked terrible.  So, today I made a copier friendly version!  Click below to download both copies.

As for the hint, use this freebie with giant silly glasses, pointers, and/or a fly swatter with the center cut out so it may be a word whacker for the room reading.  I will try to post a pic of what that looks like in my room, soon.

Happy Wednesday,

  1. Hi Amy! I love your Daily 5 Anchor Chart! So cute! We are going to the Balloon Fiesta on Saturday morning. I think we are going to try to go one night, but not sure which one. My step-son is coming into town this week to visit! I'd love to go to the Special Shapes Glowdeo or go see the river competition :)
