I’m having a disconnect when it comes to implementing Story Town into my Daily 5 sessions. It seems to be all about working with students individual stories that they choose when working on the strategies. How do I also fit in time to work on the “story of the week” from story town that the whole class is reading together. When would I do that?
I’m not familiar with Story Town, but I assume it’s a basal program. Several teachers have responded on the Disc Board about various programs and how they can incorporate it into Daily 5/CAFE. Many have said that they take one of the mini-lesson times each week to read the story as a whole group, and then move on to Daily 5.
