    3. I also love your blog and your classroom! Did you ever share the CAFE strategies and headers? We are just beginning the DAily 5 and would love to have these! Also, for your math Daily 5 bins...do you just put the choices for each thing in those (ex: different game choices for math with someone?)

      Delete
    4. Hi Jennifer

      I just shared the strategies and headers in my latest post!

      For Math Daily 5.....in each bin there is a different choice. So I have 3 Math with Someone Bins...and there would be 3 different games....1 game in each bin. I also make 3 copies of each game. So in 1 bin....there would be the game Double it! There is 3 copies...so 3 pairs of kids could play.

      Hope that makes sense!

    1. Hi Jenise

      I got the crates for free from a lady who had them in her garden. I then took 1 of the crates with me to home depot and told a man that I needed boards cut to fit inside. He found some stuff that would hold adults and kids when sitting. It was a think particle board. I had him cut me 6 pieces to fit the crates. I then cut some batting to fit each board. Covered it with fabric and staple gunned it on!
