  1. This looks WONDERFUL! I didn't do Daily 5 last year because my district makes us adhere to a certain rotation. But when I get back to Kindergarten(I'm in Pre-K currently), I'm going to try the Daily 5. I'm sure that I can get away with it. ;-) Btw, how do you like 2nd grade? I taught 2nd one year and I LOVED IT!!!
