Daily Five Freebie {In Spanish}

Do you use the Daily Five in your classroom?  I LOVE it!!  I always start out the year with the I-PICK lesson about the importance of choosing a just right book.  In the book "The Daily Five", Gail Boushey and Jean Moser suggest using shoes to teach this lesson.  Just as you must choose the right style and size of shoe for your foot, you also must choose a book that is on your level and that you are interested in.  I love to bring in my husband's shoes {size 13, I might add} and trip all over the classroom to bring home the point.  I also show a flip flop and ask if I should wear it to work, a dress shoe and ask if I should go running in it, etc.  The kids get so into the lesson.

I have found, though, that the I-PICK acronym doesn't make much sense to the Spanish speakers.  I decided to brainstorm & came up with the acronym PIES.  It goes great with the lesson that I teach about shoes, and translates well into Spanish.  Click here to grab your very own copy in Spanish.  I love finding new Daily Five freebies in Spanish!
