Are you excited?!?! We sure hope so! 

I have been waiting to blog about my first year experience with Daily 5 all year long. If you go to my side bar where it says "labels" & click on "Daily 5" you can see my previous posts about it. 

I AM O.B.S.E.S.S.E.D with Daily 5! It is the BEST program I have ever used during my 90 minute literacy block. I can't wait to show you what I did!

I am rereading & will blog about it along with all of you. 

What should you do to prepare??? READ THE BOOK! FOLLOW THE ABOVE BLOGS! BRAINSTORM YOUR OWN IDEAS AS YOU READ & TAKE NOTES! 

I will be back with some Daily 5 freebies & a set schedule. 

ATTENTION 1-3 BLOGGERS: We are looking for a few bloggers in grades 1, 2 or 3 to cover a chapter. If you are a blogger & are interested please send me an email @ seusstasticblogspot@gmail.com
First come, first serve!

  4. ... I think this might be my signal to finally start a blog of my own! I'll be a first-year teacher this upcoming year (just graduated with my M.T.) and in second grade. I was planning on reading along, but maybe I ought to take part!

  6. Awesome! I just read the book and am going to try the program next year. I teach students with moderate to severe disabilities so it might be a little different for me, but I can't wait to follow along.

  7. Yay! I am so excited to implement The Daily 5 in my classroom next year. I'll be a first year, first grade teacher! I found a book group like this for the upper grades, and am *so* happy that Jana over at Thinking Out Loud let me know about this one! Is it going to be a discussion on each blog of each person who hosts a chapter? Or will there be a universal blog for the book talk?

    Thank you guys SO much for this!

  8. I would love to host a chapter. I began using Daily 5 last year (kind-of) and fully implemented it this year. I am so excited you all are doing this. I was so jealous of the upper grade level book study.
    I am so excited!!!
    Thanks for putting this together!

  9. We have been doing daily 5 in our school for a long time. You are going to really like it. If I can make one suggestion....make more stations from the 5 they give you, by mid year the kids get restless. Also, I often see less groups a day for more time so I can get quality work done. Have fun!

  10. I am so excited about this. I am determined to implement this in my class next year. I currently teach in Korea (an American school)and can't wait. I am new to blogging and all this stuff, so I hope this will be easy to follow. I will still be in school when you start and we have a 13 hour time difference EST but I will follow along. Thanks for doing this!!!YIPPEE!!

  17. I can't wait! I love the Daily 5 and would never structure my literacy block any other way! can't wait to follow the book study and get some more insight and ideas.

  18. Silly question. I have read the book a few times, but should I reread it before the book study or read as I go through the book study? I am so excited I found this:)! I have been out of the classroom for a year and can't wait to get back in. Hopefully next year. Fingers crossed!

    1. I read the book too & I am going to read chapter by chapter. Personally, I retain more that way. We will do a chapter a week.

    1. There is no "sign up" you just start following the blogs on June 13th. We will do one chapter a week & other bloggers will join in. It will all come together once we start. Glad you are going to follow along. Mel
