I don't. This year our schedules were created by Central Office and are to be followed...as in my recess time is from 12:09-12:29 kind of detail. This leaves little room to work the CAFE structure into our schedule.
But to answer your question, last year I had a reading/writing block followed by a thirty minute block to complete spelling work and literacy rotations. That's just not possible this year.
But in the big scheme of things, don't stress about it. The important thing is that you are providing daily time to read and write, combined with time to conference and work together in a meaningful way.
I hope that helps,
