     Daily 5 words you may hear your child using throughout the school year are:

"Good Fit Books" 


"Build Stamina"

"EEK Style"


     The Daily 5 is a framework utilized in the classroom to help students develop independent literacy habits.  The Daily 5 is a series of literacy tasks which students complete independently while the teacher works with small groups.  During this time, I will be meeting with small guided reading and writing groups.  The 5 tasks the students are asked to do are as follows: 

                  Read to Self

Students will have the opportunity to read "good fit" books to themselves.  Monitoring comprehension will be a goal during this center.  

Remember the "IPICK" model!

Read to Someone

Students will be reading with a partner to increase their fluency and strengthen their comprehension.  Each student will learn how to become a reading coach for their partner.  Isn't that cool?

Work on Writing

Students will be working on different forms of writing during this time.  They will have choices within this center regarding projects, prompts, and other fun activities to strengthen their writing skills.

Word Work

Students will be working on spelling patterns and robust vocabulary words during this time.  Once again, choices of activities will be offered to the students working in this center.


Listen to Reading

Students will listen to books on a CD, online stories, and a teacher read "read-a-loud" story.  Students will learn how to journal and make predictions and strategies to check for understanding while they listen.

In addition students will participate in these other activities:


Students will work on specific assignments during this time.

Guided Reading/Guided Writing

Students work in small groups with the teacher.
