In my school it is required to teach a reading series (we use the treasures reading series). How does the daily 5 work with a basal series? Especially with a large push on common core and rigorous activities. They need to be challenged and I almost feel that if i had the read to self part of daily 5 going when an admin walked in i would be in trouble because there was no discussion going on with rigorous questioning etc. I usually spend 2 weeks on a story now i'm trying to figure out how to structure a story. For example one of the stories in treasures is boom town. What are good do now exercises? I'm overwhelmed with where to start.
