This packet describes how my classroom is set up for Daily 5 /Literacy Stations. I have been doing it this way, with some minor modifications for a very long time... I decided to keep these signs, station/Daily 5 sheets and station/daily 5 icons together because they can be switched back and forth according to the needs of your classroom. If you are like me, my stations are all literacy based and are designed with The Daily 5 in mind. However, I feel strongly that students need to be held accountable for their reading, writing so I may have it set up a bit differently than some.
2 different Station/Center Sheets for students to record stations complete. One with Male teacher and one with a female teacher icon.

I learned a LOOOOOng time ago that a little sweetness goes a long way so I have tried to look at the positive side of life as a retired teacher of 30+ years, a wife, mom and Mimi of three. Who doesn’t want to visit their Mimi and experience a reality “Candyland” game with all kinds of forbidden pleasures like lollipops, Hershey hugs and kisses, cupcakes, brownies and all those sugary treats, They can visit and experience the sweetness of Mimi’s and then go back home on a sugary high!
My teaching style was and still is to keep all lessons dazzling, fun, hands on and whatever each child needs to learn and grow! I LOVE to differentiate instruction as much as I can! Let’s face it, each year you get a classroom full of kiddos as different as a box of chocolates...Each piece might look pretty much the same on the outside, but when you take a bite, you can see and taste the difference...all sugary and sweet, but different in many ways!
I hope you enjoy using all these lessons and ideas as much as I did during my teaching career. Have fun and remember to enjoy each day because it is definitely a SWEET TREAT!!
