One of my team teachers was trying to explain what it was. As she talked, all I could think of was Good God NO! How in the world would you have time to do all of that and still teach the skills. Weeeellll, she isn't a very good explainer. I got in touch with another friend and she filled me in on what it is and how it is going in her class. Now, I have purchased The Daily Five book as well as it's companion The CAFE Book. I am totally excited. I am going to join the web site too. It does include all the teaching time, skills, fluency, phonics...everything. It is supposed to be almost the way I taught back 25 years ago. When students learned to read by READING! I can't wait. I will be blogging next year as I learn the process and work with the students.
Someone asked (as a joke) if the daily 5 was the 5 students you picked ramdomly to spank every day. I said I didn't have 5 kids to spank anymore. I only have one. Can I spank him 5 times a day?
I am a wild, whacky, weird, wonderful woman and teacher. I am venturing into a previous life by teaching ELL this fall. I use to teach ESL years ago. I am excited, empowered, and employed. I love life.
