    Hello everyone,

    Two weeks into the school year and I really want to implement literacy stations, but I'm torn between two: regular literacy centers (as in Debbie Diller's Making Stations Work) and The Daily 5. I really want to do The Daily 5, but literacy centers appears to make more sense because I only have seven students and it would really help me reinforce Reading Street (3rd grade).

    Any ideas/suggestions/experiences?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    My school does The Daily 5.

    So I do Daily 5 with my 4 kindergarten kiddos. It's tough because it's all about independent work with them because there aren't enough of them to rotate with a group. We do Read to Someone as a whole group at the end.

    I think you can make it work with your students if Daily 5 is really what you want to do.

    7 students will be wonderful! It would be ideal. Think of all the individual time you can give them at reading and writing goals and independent instruction. If read to someone becomes an issue, pull in parents or another class.
