Daily 5 - The Daily Cafe - The Daily Cafe
The Daily 5™ is a framework for structuring literacy time so students develop lifelong habits of reading, writing, and working independently. The second edition was released in spring 2014. How does it work? Students select from five authentic reading and writing choices, working independently toward personalized goals, while the teacher meets individual needs through whole-group and small-group instruction, as well as one-on-one conferring. These choices include Read to Self, Work on Writing, Read to Someone, Listen to Reading, and Word Work. Teachers tell us their Daily 5 classrooms produce productive, highly engaged students who are developing a true love of literacy.
