I spent my summer reading both the Daily 5 and CAFE books, so I am TRYING to implement them in my classroom this year. I am doing OK. I am not really doing all 5 activities and I am still doing some literacy centers. But my kiddos are doing the Read to Self, Read to Someone, and Listen to Reading. I was having trouble figuring out a quick and easy way for them to make their choices. So what I came up with is in the picture below. When my kiddos come in, in the morning they grab their clothespin from the table and put it on the chart by their choice for the day. If they are reading to someone, the person who is clipped on the same number is their partner. My original plan was to have 2 or three of these charts and they would clip for each session that we would do, but are only doing one session so.....I only have one chart. Click on the picture if you would like to download the chart for yourself for free! I would love to hear from you if you download it!
