    I am reading this book and LOVING it!!
    I hope to start implementing some of the "read to self" things next week or possibly the week after.
    I am a litlte nervous becaue I am doing this mid year, not September.
    I would love any insights to anyone using it with primary grades (I teach first).

    I am hoping that it is as sucessful as it sounds!

    I started it mid-year last year as well. I would start it sometime AFTER home reports have gone out. I made the mistake of starting several weeks before home reports were due, and during the first few weeks, you are getting them to build stamina (i.e. not conferencing) I was in freakout mode realizing that I didn't have a strong enough knowledge of reading levels. (Or that my knowledge was outdated.)

    It's a wonderful thing though! You are going to love it!

    I am a Daily 5 fanatic as well! We had a lot of teachers implement Daily 5 mid-year last year. It might work out nice for you, then you can get it under your belt so that you can implement both Daily 5 AND CAFE at the start of the year next year!

    I started mid-year and loved it!
    I loved it even more in September when I added CAFE and already piloted Daily 5.

    I am a whole new teacher because of the Sisters!

    This is a great book, along with Cafe! I think it's great to start any time of the year, maybe January after the break for a fresh, new start?
