The Daily 5 schedule is an example schedule that I personally use. It offers a look into rotations for three different sessions per day. This will give you the opportunity to meet with your lower group 4 days a week, the medium groups and higher groups twice a week. Each session is 15-20 minutes long or can be modified based on the approximate time you will have during your reading block. In this schedule, each group will repeat one Daily 5 center, besides “work with teacher”, twice a week.
The individual schedule cards are to help students know where they are scheduled to go. These cards can be attached to a Daily 5 notebook, folder, or on a students desk for convenience.
