Does anyone know if there's a good book/resource out there on the concept of Daily 5 for Math? I've found websites, etc. of teachers who are trying things, but I haven't found a book yet... Thanks!

I know that the sisters are writing a book for math, but I'm not sure if it is published yet. However, their website might be the most helpful: http://www.thedailycafe.com/ They are very good on answering questions on everything Daily 5 and CAFE.

I created my own. While I teach a small group on current topics, the others are working on math facts, previous concept, or math games/problem solving. It's more like centers but we created I-charts and such for expectations. I keep it to 15 minutes or an hour per day and do not do the mini lessons.

There's no book, and while I've heard rumours of a book coming out, the sisters themselves have said that the next book will address the first six weeks of Daily Five. There is a lot of information on the website that mopar posted. Overall, as much as I love what the sisters do with Literacy, I'm not all that impressed with their Math Daily Five...

I also created my own rotations and did it very similar to Daily 5. I have them use Versa-Tiles, solve problems on white boards, work on a specific math game on the computers, a worksheet, and have them work on a game or something that I incorporate depending on our math skill, and then of course one of the rotations is to work with me. I have a spread sheet that lists the rotations and each of the kids are in a group color that I pre-determined. I actually use this for Daily 5 too, we tried it without and the kids actually like knowing where they need to go next. Anyway, it really doesn't take much to adapt the same concept to math

I'm not sure what grade you teach, but I just saw that Debbie Diller came out with a new Math station book. http://www.stenhouse.com/shop/pc/viewprd.asp?idProduct=9282&r=
