the2sisters - Boushey and Moser are the 2 sisters that created the Daily 5.
If you have not read this book I highly recommend it. You can purchase it on Amazon (click here). During the reading block, the Daily 5 system simplifies centers by getting back to the basics: read to self (independently), read with a buddy, listen to reading, writing, and word work.
The "I Love First Grade" Blogger has some useful resources on her Teachers Pay Teachers website. Click here to check out her resources.
I absolutely love this idea on the "first grade Fanatics" blog. They incorporate new technology into the listening center by using iPod shuffles. Check out their page!
I was so inspired by their post that I went to DonorsChoose.org to request funding in order to implement this idea in my classroom next year. Please read over my project request at http://www.donorschoose.org/MrsLowery.
On Mrs.Shannon's First Grade Class' website there are useful downloads for posters you can hang in your classroom.
If you are way into the Daily 5, you can also check out the 2 sisters' latest work The Daily Cafe.
You can always purchase their book on Amazon. I haven't actually implemented the Daily Cafe into my classroom yet but I loved the idea when I heard it presented in 2011 at the International Reading Association's Annual Convention in Orlando. If it is anything like the Daily 5, it's brilliant!
