And when I say Time to read I mean essentially read the whole time, I just couldn't fit that in exactly. But I tried to take the most important elements for each Daily 5 component and make it work with RIGHT. And my kids love it. Now if someone is off task or unsure (especially when you begin in the fall) I just do a quick RIGHT reminder - "Are you Writing the RIGHT way?" And that's all it takes. You can click below to download RIGHT for all 5 components of the Daily 5.

I Love the Daily 5
I love the Daily 5, it changed how I was able to do things in my classroom. Who knew that during the school day you could actually have a group of students around your table and listen to them read in silence!! I love it! I have read and re-read the Daily 5 book. Now when the Daily 5 is running well in my classroom, I have to say, I look forward to that time of day, when I just have a small group of kids with me and I can do Guided Reading with them - uninterrupted. So...I wanted another way for my kids to remember what they needed to be doing at each activity, yes we had the I-Charts, but I wanted something else that would make remembering the task easier, so I came up with RIGHT. Use RIGHT to remember. Here's what it looks like for Read to Self.
