Summer Book Club Party

School's... Out... For... Summer!!!

While we are anxious to kick up our feet with an ice cold Diet Coke and soak in the sunshine rays... we also have work to do and fun to have. This summer a few bloggy friends are going to read, discuss and create the DAILY 5.   We would love to have many participate and share their expertise and ideas. Anyone want to jump on our bus?  Let us know with a quick comment if you already do the Daily 5 in your classroom or like us... want to learn.  Stay tuned for more information... purchase a copy... gather your post-its and a couple of highlighers.

I've been doing the Daily 5 for a while and it will be nice to see and read about new and fresh ideas.

I love Daily five too! I use it with kindergarten and think it is the very best way to structure reading workshop in a classroom. I think the CAFE book is so important too. The CAFE board really helps to structure lessons before students go into the Daily 5. I think both books are amazing!! I look forward to this discussion!! Melissa

I am so in. I'll be a first-year teacher next year -- in second grade, no less -- and definitely want to do Daily 5/CAFE. I already had purchased the books to read myself (everything else I've learned has been through teacher blogs), so this is perfect for me!

Now I just need to start a blog...

Mrs. Bachar's Kindergarten Class said...

I'm moving to 2nd from K and want to implement it! Can't wait to start!

Catherine said...

I've been doing D5 in my first grade classroom for a couple of years now and L.O.V.E. it! I tried CAFE this year, but kind of gave up on it...can't wait to join the discussions! When do we start? :)

Debra said...

I'm in!! Have been to see "The Sisters" several years ago and did D5, but after an administrative change (with micromanagement), stopped doing it. Anxious to get a refresher course and new ideas!!

Katie Rhoads said...

I keep hearing about the Daily 5, but am not sure what it really entails. I'm also moving up from Kindergarten to 1st grade this year, so I'm definitely interested in reading these books and learning what it's all about!

I am definitely in! I am moving from 4th to 2nd grade this upcoming year and I bought both books a few weeks ago. I have finished the D5 and I am in the middle of CAFE. No one in my school does the D5 so I am on my own. Would love to hear all of the ideas!

Mikaela said...

I would love to do this. I've read about D5 quite a bit on several blogs and am ready to read the book and learn more this summer. Can't wait to hear others' thoughts and ideas!

I would love to participate in the discussion. I started Daily 5 this last school year, but I didn't fully do it. I want to try again and would love a group to discuss it with.

SweetP said...

I would like to implement Daily5/CAFE during the 2012-13 school year. I have been reading Daily 5, and I'm anxious to find out how other teachers use it already.

Mrs. Fitz said...

I am starting Daily 5 next year too!
