The Daily 5 is a great tool in developing independence in the classroom. It's core beliefs is something very practical that teachers can implement that will encourage student to be more enterprising.

This book is great for new teachers. It goes into detail for teachers who want to try a new strategy for students that can help build skills for literacy and also for math. It is an unique way to set up a classroom and can be very valuable to every teacher if one decides to use this book as reference for a new start.
