My next few posts will go into detail about my Morning Work, The Daily Five and Math Menu. I will probably say this at least 100 times...but I. LOVE. DAILY. FIVE! I love it so much that we adapted it to our math block and call it Math Menu (there are other Math Menus out there, but we picked the name 'menu' because the kiddos get to choose their choice) ! It changed the way I approach centers and I love how independent my firsties were!
Who else out there in blog land does The Daily Five???
