Daily Five My Way

So I am a huge fan of Daily Five and have been doing it exactly that way the "two sisters" suggested.  With my class this year, we are not quite independent and cannot seem to make the right choices.  When we come back from Winter Break, we are making changes to our Daily Five (literacy block).  My kinders are no longer doing Read to Self because I feel like they are not truly reading to themselves and it wasn't a good use of time.  Being the organizational freak that I am, I whipped up a schedule with two rotations everyday.  I meet with my two lowest guided reading groups 4 times a week, my middle group 3 times a week, and my two highest groups twice a week.  I am excited and looking forward to our newly adapted Daily Five block. 

Below are the guided reading groups I will meet outside of literacy block to ensure that my lowest two groups are being met 4-5 times a week, my two highest group 2 times a week, and middle group 3 times a week.

If you have any suggested, I would love to hear them.
