"The sisters" are obviously long-lost relatives of mine.
Let's run down the list of similarities here, shall we? Gail Boushey and Joan Moser were classroom teachers when they wrote the book and tell about systems they created with their own students, they don't advocate one `right' way to teach that requires you to throw out everything else you do, and they show you how to teach your students to run the classroom. Check, check, and CHECK. I'm totally on board.
Most of you reading this review are already familiar with the Daily 5 (it's been out since 2006), so I'll make this less of a book summary and more of an opinion piece. I loved how readable the book was. The tone was conversational and easy-to-understand. I loved the ongoing discussion of how their teaching practice has changed and evolved over the years. Not only does this make the sisters seem like real people who didn't start off as master teachers on day one, but it gives permission to the rest of us to grow and let go of ineffective practices we've become attached to. I also love how the book emphasizes the element of choice for children. This truly is a student-centered way to run your literacy block.
But mostly, I love the way the sisters emphasize modeling and practice for routines. This is something I've been droning on about for years, but I've never seen the concept so perfectly explained for the context of literacy routines.Read more ›
I thought I was going to get to teach process and content from this book, but the by product was exceptional classroom management self-regulated by my high school students - all this I credit to the "2 Sisters"!

YES! I teach 4th graders and I love it. I use the Daily 3, though. Due to time, we do Read to Self, Read to Someone, and Writing. The first lessons teach kids how to be independent readers. We have mini lessons on how to read a book and we spend a lot of time modeling what each piece looks... Read More

|Daily 5 and AR-how do they work together?||
We use AR too. I just ordered the book so I can't really speak from the experience of integrating AR into Daily 5. But I think you are on the right track of establishing a routine and then adding AR to it.
One thing that has worked for me as far as AR goes is having a sign up sheet for taking... Read More

Yes! I've used it successfully for the last two years in my Kindergarten classroom. They are reading! One of the most empowering thing with our students is the three ways to read (read the pictures, read the words, retell the story); they can do 2/3 of those at the beginning of the year and as...
