Daily 5

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

read to self: Students will have the opportunity to read "just right" books to themselves.    Monitoring comprehension will be a key goal during this center.

read to someone:  Students will be reading with partners to increase their fluency and strengthen their comprehension.  Each student will have the chance to become a reading coach for their partner.  

work on writing:  Students will be working on different forms of writing during this time: friendly letters, persuasive writing, informational writing, reports, poetry, story making, literature responses.  

word work:  Students will be working with spelling patterns and robust vocabulary during this time.

listen to reading:  Students will be listening to books on CD, tapes, and online. This center models fluent reading for the students.
