I was not a BIG FAN of the Daily Cafe's way of keeping student records. I tried it and it wasn't for me. I usually use Daily Five with the Cafe grouping strategies, and then pair it with guided reading record keeping. Here's a website with some basic info. on keeping a guided reading binder.

This is a GREAT example of what Guided Reading looks like! ...also a link to several other great videos including Daily 5

    Good lesson. My situation is trying to keep the rest of the class engaged so they are not a distraction. I wish I could have seen the rest of the class. I teach first grade and I just love it.

    Would have been even better if she asked the students to make the predictions. I also noticed that she does most of the speaking. One girl raised her hand and the teacher waved her hand and head telling her no. It would have been great to allow the girl to ask a question or make a statement.
