Daily 5 Planning: Links and Resources

Currently I'm setting up my classroom for the inclusion of the daily 5.  I'm drawn to this approach because it is a reading workshop model that engages and empowers children while also facilitating growth and success in reading and writing.

Daily Five:
Teachers confer with individuals and small groups while others engage in the following activities:

  1. Vocabulary
  2. Read to Self
  3. Read to Someone
  4. Work on Writing
  5. Work on Skills and/or Listen to Stories.

I just participated in the Monday night 4thchat.  It's always a great resource for sharing and learning ideas.  As I embark on the daily 5 strategies, I was happy to receive several helpful links to aid this endeavor.  I've listed the links below.  Please feel free to send me additional resources that you've found helpful.
