Choosing a Good Fit Book

The Daily Five
Do you use Daily 5 in your classroom?  I have been using portions of the literacy system and I love it.  Best of all, my students do too!  One of the first lessons is finding good fit books.

This video is a great visual resource for teachers and kids alike.

Click here for the original shared by "The Sisters" themselves.  Stay tuned tomorrow when I share another option for good fit books.

Happy Teaching and Learning!


  1. I have this on my "to be read" pile. I've heard lots about it and am very curious.

  2. I have used Daily five and CAFE for about 4 years. It is a great system for any grade to get your students to be independent workers, readers and writers.

  3. I would also love to use this in my classroom. We got to see the Sisters speak and I thought the system seemed great!

  4. Thanks for sharing this!

    Keep up the hard work!
