    I did the daily 5 for the first time this year...this is what worked for us:
    I did have all daily 5 as available options each day and gave each child a "tracking report" every Monday. I would remind them at our first meeting/mini lesson that if they "went to writing and read to someone" yesterday---they should pick somewhere they had not gone to yet to start with today. I was adamant that I would keep the "choice" component and not go to scheduling ---it worked beautifully. Nearly all of my kids could do this completely independently. 2 needed support!

    I usually had 3-4 "sessions" per day---- I fit in all 5 at the beginning of the year because the stamina is not built up yet.

    I also have to tell you that I absolutely LOVED the Daily 5- I am sure that I will use it again next year. I got lots of compliments the focus and meaningful work going on in my room!!!!
