Ok so this will be my first time implementing D5 and The Cafe ... I am super excited about it, but I have some questions for those of you who have done it before and might have some suggestions for me ...
A little background first -- I will be departmentalized teaching reading/social studies ... so I will see 2 different classes each day. Soooooo here are my questions??
** For my Cafe do I just share the board for both classes? I'm just thinking for when I introduce a skill for the 1st time and add it to the board ... I guess for the afternoon class I could take the skill down and re-introduce it or just wait to put it on the board??
** Book Bins -- I have a decent size classroom library but not huge by any means, how many books at minimum should the kids keep in their bins, I'm worried I wont have enough for 2 classes to have filled at the same time.
Thanks for your help, it's hard to visualize how this will work being I have not done it with one class and I'll be doing it for 2!!
