CAFE Pensieve Linky Party

Last year was my first year to implement Daily 5...  TOTAL LOVE at first sight implementation!!!  (ha ha)...  I could see how much more valuable it can be spending those valuable minutes doing things that actually make them better readers and writers versus spending that time doing things that occupy them while I try to have guided reading groups centers!!!  I also enjoyed working with students one-on-one or in (very) small groups but had trouble keeping up with the management of it all....

Enter CAFE & the PENSIEVE!!!  =)

I have just created my Pensieve and started using it but would LOVE to hear from you all on your tips, "do's & don't's", and successes and failures with your own experiences....  That's why I have created this Linky Party to house a resource for us all to help support (especially us newbies like me!) the use of our Pensieve!

I have also attached my documents that I adapted from the 2 Sisters....  Grab your free copy by clicking on the pictures below!!!

Please be sure to link up and SHARE!!!!!!!

Thanks so much & God Bless!!!
