Alice Lee What is the Daily five for reading? I have never heard of it, unless by a different name. I teach with trade books, and my students love it. I get a lot of info out of the books. If you would like to know more, just holler. Alice On 6/20/11, mrszemog wrote: > Hello, I'm have been teaching first grade for the past five > years and will be movi...See More
