and would be willing to share? I am struggling with how to get my kids to choose. Last year I had a very independent group and we could do it no problem, but this year is a whole new story.

I teach K Treasures and I know that I will have to break our mini lessons apart because I have very young babies this year who cannot sit for more than 10 mins.

Would you be willing to share the notebook file?

I use Treasures and D5. I tried the mini-lesson, round one, mini-lesson, round two format and it did not work for me. I switched to the traditional 30 minute whole group and three rounds of 20 minutes each. Between each round I would call students to the carpet and they would make their next choice. I use a SMART Notebook file I made to keep track and have the students be able to see their choices. This worked great for me. I just couldn't get Treasures to flow with the mini-lesson format.

I'm REALLY close to having my students start choosing. We are up to 20+ minutes for readt to self and read to someone...not so hot on Writing (it has to be readers response...boo) Anyway, I am having a hard time doing the schedule. I have 90 minutes so I thought:

10 minutes Vocab
20 Mins Round 1
10 mins Strategy/Basal story
20 mins Round 2
10 mins phonics
20 mins Round 3
I haven't tried it yet...Plus, I'm only going to have time to do 3 rounds but still want them to have all choices...SO, I thought everyday they must read to self and read to someone....then they have to do the other 3 at least once a week. Ideas????
