    I was just wondering if anyone who has read the book and/or is doing the 5 does all five parts (reading to self, listening to reading, word work, writing, and reading to someone), but only has time for maybe lets say 2 or 3 independent times a day.

    So what I might do is replace my center time with daily 5. Therefore the students would only get a chance to pick two of those tasks a day. Then the following day they would have to pick two different tasks, and the third day they would do the fifth task and then pick a new task to begin the process all over again.

    I was just wondering what everyone's thoughts were on this?

    Oh by the way, I would then still teach writing and reading (using a basal series we have) separately at another time.

    I'm struggling with replacing my direct instruction lessons with the full daily 5 therefore eliminating teaching writing and reading at a separate time.

    Any advice or anything would help me with this matter. Thanks, sorry so long!:):thanks:

    I'm going to be doing 4 sections, modified slightly because of the novels and comprehension activities that I want to do.
    -Read to self, which will include worksheets and response writing
    -Read to partner, which will include worksheets that can be done together
    -Read to teacher, which will include fluency and inflection, word strategies, and comprehension strategies
    -Word work, which will include story/chapter specific vocabulary and spelling work which will include word ladders, word sorts, and spelling contracts
    -Whole group instruction with mini-lessons

    Mine is going to have to rotate because I only have 2 periods in the morning (math takes up one of the periods) before my class starts with specialists classes. I anticipate each student will work in 2 areas each day, not including the whole group instruction. They will start the next day with areas not done the day before. I'm still working on the structure of my record keeping for this so that I am certain students are working in all areas. Probably something with a chart, sticky notes, and clothespins to keep track of what has been done/where students are currently working.
