    Isn't it an amazing book? I read it last summer and implemented some of it this past year. Next year I will be implementing more of it too. Have you checked out the Sister's websites-- one is thedailycafe.com and I can't remember the other one but there are great resources on it. Enjoy- I am going to take the book out and reread it again this summer.:cool:

    It is a great book! I'm probably going to be implementing the Daily 3 in my third grade class this year. :)

    That's what I did too. Read to Self, Read to Someone and Listen to Reading. This year I might add Working with Words... Not sure yet.

    It is good to hear so many positive thoughts about this book. I got it but haven't read it yet. I am planning on reading it before going back to school.

    Thanks for the encouragement!

    Start reading upsadaisy!

    Its really an easy read. And I love how everything makes sense. I also like how they've tried it before in their own classrooms. The only thing that makes me nervous (I've only read through part 1 so far) so the idea of the mini lessons between each chunk of time. But I'm hoping Part 2 will alleviate those fears...

    I really like how they laid everything out in the back.

    I've read about half of the book so far and I really like it a lot! I am trying to figure out how I can implement this into my pre-K class, and I think it could work! I love how the students use stamina and comprehension in their own wording, and it seems so important to them!

    I was planning on using Reader's Workshop and I'm just wondering if it's better to use Daily 5 instead, or if it's possible to do a combination of both. I really like all of the ideas the book has to offer so far, my only concern is the lack of space in my classroom. I will try to put some seating areas in... but I don't know how many different spots I will be able to fit in there!
