You will need access to many books for kids on a variety of levels, so get your librarian on board as well!
I recently asked my students how they felt with the new daily 5 implementation. Many students had expressed frustration with our center activities, feeling like they were just stuff to keep them busy while I pulled back students for guided reading. I asked them how they felt now, an they told me that they really loved the Daily 5 because they got to pick the order in which they worked on literacy each day. They felt like they were getting better at reading because they were reading so much more than we ever have before. Love when kids notice a difference!
The book is targeted for K-3, but the back tells you how to adapt it to 4-6 (or higher if you want!). It cuts out word work and listening to reading for those students because the focus moves to comprehension for upper grades as most have mastered accuracy and fluency.
It's sent from Amazon, so the condition is perfect and it came in a week. I recommend the book to every teacher I know!
