Daily Five Book Studies for EVERY Grade K-6

I hope you all are enjoying your weekend! The summer syndrome caught up with me a little bit this week and despite the 34893 projects and ideas swarming around in my head for next year, I decided to take a week away from all of it and just be Summerful! I read non teaching material by the pool, grabbed drinks with girlfriends, attempted to make friends with my messy house (aka- clean),  and made a last minute decision to go with friends to the 9:30 PM showing of What to Expect When You're Expecting-- just because we could!! I love being Summerful :)

But today I wanted to take a second and share three Daily 5 Book Studies that are about to launch, the best part being there is one for everyone!

We Read, We Blog, We Teach 

I have heard so many teachers rave about The Daily Five and have been interested in figuring out how I could get it up and started since my first year teaching 1st grade. I purchased the book 3 years ago and have read it cover to cover but want to do it again with all you fabulous bloggers! This year I finally started to implement some of the Daily Five structure into my classroom towards the end of the year, but I'm interested in learning more about it and discussing it with other teachers to see if I can do more. If you've already gotten this program up and running and are also required to teach  from a Basal Reading Program I'd love to hear from you!


  1. I don't teach from a basal, but I do love Daily 5! It makes so much sense. Kids spend their time reading and writing instead of doing stuff about reading and writing. You'll love the book study I'm sure. "Summerful" - good word.
