Second Grade Nest: Putting Daily 5 All Together!

Putting Daily 5 All Together!


Daily 5- Putting it all together at the beginning of the year


In the past 5 posts, I've reviewed how I introduced each component of Daily 5 into my morning routine! 
Now, I can share how it flows all together!

First, we start with our "Rounds" chart. The kiddos know where to look after each round. They break off into their flexible leveled group for a 15 minute component, then check back in at their desks waiting for the next round to begin.

I am pleasantly surprised how independent these students are during Daily 5. It gives me a chance to conference on writing and listen to their fluency and they can do their own activities without interrupting.

The schedule:
Reading Focus Lesson
Writing Focus Lesson
D5 Round 1
D5 Round 2
D5 Round 3
D5 Round 4
D5 Round 5

It usually takes my whole morning, but inside of that time slot, we have spelling, reading, and writing, which would take over 2 hours individually. And this gives them a chance for independence and small group interaction.

I don't think I'll ever go back! I love Daily 5!!
