I can't believe that I am on Christmas break and when we get back to school there are only 3 more 6 weeks left of my first year in 3rd grade. We implemented the Daily 5 this year and it has been sooooo much easier to manage than stations. Shout out if you do the CAFE in your classroom! My kids really get excited about conferencing with me and then posting their name on the strategy they need to focus on. I created some strategy cards to go on my CAFE board to match my polka dot motif because I'm too OCD to hand-write them (they would be all different and would throw me into a panic).
Check out my strategy cards and grab a set HERE! Merry Christmas everyone!
