Daily 5 and Cafe.

I am a huge fan of the Daily 5 and Cafe, but like many teachers have adapted the two methods to better meet the needs of my students and classroom.  I am going to dedicate my posts in April to sharing how I have implemented Daily 5 and Cafe into my classroom and sharing some of the resources that I have created to help facilitate the process.

If you are a fan of Daily 5 and Cafe share your ideas as well.  Let's make April Daily 5 and Cafe month!  

Both of these books can be purchased off of  I highly recommend both of them.

Lucky Name Tags

Instead of using the desk plates for my student's "Irish" names, I made name tags they could wear. I made these in publisher so you can either write the names or type the names onto each tag.  Simply print the document onto Avery 5163 labels.

Lucky Money

My students and I have been working on counting money.  I created a SMART file where student's pulled gold coins out of the pot o' gold.  Each gold coin had a value written on it.  Students would make the value with their coins.

St. Patty's Day FUN!

Every year I give my students an Irish name for St. Patty's Day.  I simply add Mc or O' to their last names.  When they come into class on the morning of St. Patrick's Day, they are so excited, curious, and giddy to see that everyone, including me, has a new name for the day.  I go by Mrs. McWanke for the day.

If you would like to do this with your class, click on the image below to visit my Teachers Pay Teachers store for the FREE download! While you are there check out some of my other items at my store.  I am new to Teachers Pay Teachers, so check back often for new items.
