Daily 5 and Cafe

I know there are tons of Kindergarten classes that used Daily 5 successfully- I just was never one who thought I could, so I didn't.  Now that I am moving to 3rd grade I feel like I can better wrap my head around Daily 5.  Good thing, because our administration has decided that they want us to do Daily 5 this year.  Of course, no training has been provided or information or resources- but that's a story for another day.
For the last I-don't-know-how-many-years I've been toying with the idea of Daily 5 and this year I think I am ready to make that leap.  I reread the books this summer- the updated version of Daily 5 is really good- and I think I am sort of ready to begin.  To start I made these cards to go on my CAFE wall. They go with my color scheme of navy blue, teal/turquoise and lime green. Get the freebie here.

Then I made these cards for Daily 5.  I plan to attach them together with a cute ribbon I think.  

I have high hopes for Daily 5 in 3rd grade!  I will post more about my journey and the pictures of the final product!

  1. Ok. First let me say that as I am following your blog, it is like you are following me. I have been wanting to implement the Daily 5 but I have gotten no training so I re-read the book and the new version...and I too am going to take that leap of Faith and implement it this year. I am also moving from kindergarten to 3rd grade and I am really struggling with the material. I have spent my summer reading my teacher edition books and creating interactive notebook parts(nothing as good as what is on TPT), wish you lived closer to Ohio we could meet and talk.....Good Luck this year and I will be reading and following you.
