I used the D5 ideas last year in my 1/2 day kindergarten classroom and was very happy with how they kids did. I have always done work stations/centers and tried D5 (by the way I love Debbie Diller and she has some great ideas!)
I would suggest checking out the Daily 5 groups on yahoo groups, there is a Kdg group, Daily5 group and now a book study group for more info and ideas and also the choice literacy site.
I really liked how the D5 introduced each of the Daily 5( especially the launching of read to self and partner reading) and the fact the kids were spending more time reading. I really found a big improvement in my kids end of year reading levels as compared to other years
I really found for me that I have taken pieces of the D5, kept some of my work stations ideas for word work and listen to reading.
I did not have much time in half day so I had to be a bit more creative. We did Writer's workshop separately (we use Lucy Calkins). Then did Reader's Workshop (using the D5 launching format/lesson/charts) for Partner & Read to Self Times.
Then we had a separate time for Word Work and Listen To Reading where I used some of my Debbie Diller Work Station ideas.
By having my morning broken down like this I found I had a lot more time to spend with individaul and small groups to really meet their diverse needs and the kids were really more focused and on task.
