    Does anyone know if there's a good book/resource out there on the concept of Daily 5 for Math? I've found websites, etc. of teachers who are trying things, but I haven't found a book yet...

    Thanks!

    I know that the sisters are writing a book for math, but I'm not sure if it is published yet. However, their website might be the most helpful: http://www.thedailycafe.com/

    They are very good on answering questions on everything Daily 5 and CAFE.

    I created my own.
    While I teach a small group on current topics, the others are working on math facts, previous concept, or math games/problem solving. It's more like centers but we created I-charts and such for expectations. I keep it to 15 minutes or an hour per day and do not do the mini lessons.

    There's no book, and while I've heard rumours of a book coming out, the sisters themselves have said that the next book will address the first six weeks of Daily Five.

    There is a lot of information on the website that mopar posted. Overall, as much as I love what the sisters do with Literacy, I'm not all that impressed with their Math Daily Five...

    I also created my own rotations and did it very similar to Daily 5. I have them use Versa-Tiles, solve problems on white boards, work on a specific math game on the computers, a worksheet, and have them work on a game or something that I incorporate depending on our math skill, and then of course one of the rotations is to work with me.

    I have a spread sheet that lists the rotations and each of the kids are in a group color that I pre-determined. I actually use this for Daily 5 too, we tried it without and the kids actually like knowing where they need to go next. Anyway, it really doesn't take much to adapt the same concept to math :)
