My class is supposed to be difficult so I am hoping that by following Daily 5 closely, I will have fewer behavior problems than I would have if I had stuck with my old Menu/Workshop/Centers approach. The chart pads, library, listening center, writing area, and word work shelves are ready; Am I? Hopefully!
1. Do you have parent volunteers in your room during Daily 5? If so, what do you do with them? The sisters don't recommend having volunteers at that time, but I am wondering what teachers are doing in their classrooms.
2. Do you use iPods or iPads during Daily 5? How did acquire them?
3. How do you get all 5 stations in each day, or do you? One of my partners is doing this with me (thank goodness) and we will have to do it until lunchtime to fit it all in.
If you are able to answer any of the above questions for me, I would be so grateful!
