Upper Grades Daily 5 & CAFE Book Study

Calling all upper-grades teachers (that means you, third- through middle school teachers)!  The Daily 5 & CAFE Book Study blog is officially up and running as of today!  Click on the link and join us!

I am just getting into Daily 5 & CAFE for my reading and writing blocks, but I'm super excited about it!  In my humble opinion, the books are written more with a primary classroom in mind, but I also feel like they are easily adapted to suit the needs of upper grades teachers.  Thus, the upper-grades book study!

You can stop by just to pick up suggestions, or you can leave your own experiences in the comment lines.  All suggestions are appreciated and welcome!

I found you via the lInky party a few posts back. I loved reading about all of your music selections. I love that you have them dance to their seats. I am so going to have to try this next year :)

Kelley: Your blog has a lot to offer me as well:) I also have students "monster walk", "robot walk" and "bunny hop" back to their seats during transition. It's amazing what a couple of minutes of music and movement will do for stamina!
