  2. 2. What is the Daily 5<br />The Daily 5 develops from the research and creativity of teachers sisters: Gail Boushey and Joan Moser .<br />It’s a 5 components framework to help developing literacy skills:<br />Read to Self<br />Read to Someone<br />Listen to Reading<br />Work on Writing, and <br />Word Work/ Spelling. <br />“the sisters”<br />8/18/2011<br />Zoila P.

  3. 3. The components of the Daily 5:<br />help teachers keep students focused on literacy.<br />gives students the chance to be independent in their choices and have some ownership over their education.<br />How it works?<br />8/18/2011<br />Zoila P. Carrion M.Ed<br />
  4. 4. Children start by learning to ‘pick’ a book<br />I choose a book.<br />Purpose – Why do I want to read it?<br />Interest – Does it interest me?<br />Comprehend – Am I understanding what I am reading?<br />Know – I know most of the words.<br />8/18/2011<br />Zoila P. Carrion M.Ed<br />I PICK<br />
  5. 5. 1. Read to Self<br />The first component of the Daily 5 is Read to Self, or independent reading.<br />Students learn to choose books that are “good fit”; that is books that are not too hard, nor too easy.<br />It’s also important that students spend time reading independently books that are of interest to them.<br />8/18/2011<br />Zoila P. Carrion M.Ed<br />
  6. 6. Read to Someone is when a pair of students share reading time with each other. <br />One student will read while the other checks for understanding. <br />2. Read to Someone<br />8/18/2011<br />Zoila P. Carrion M.Ed<br />
  7. 7. A listening station in an elementary classroom is a must. It allows children the chance to listen to reading and hear what fluent reading sounds like.<br />It also allows students the opportunity to hear new vocabulary and to be exposed to a variety of genres.<br />3. Listen to Reading<br />8/18/2011<br />Zoila P. Carrion M.Ed<br />
  8. 8. Writing is one of the most important components of literacy development; thus the Daily 5 writing offer children the opportunity to practice these skills regularly.<br />Writing might consist of writing in a journal or drawing and labeling a picture story.<br />4. Work on Writing<br />8/18/2011<br />Zoila P. Carrion M.Ed<br />
  9. 9. Word Work consists of developing spelling and language skills.<br />Students might be using:<br /> letters and flash cards to make words<br /> play -dough or stamps to review spelling words<br />magnetic letters to spell target words, etc<br />5. Word Work<br />8/18/2011<br />Zoila P. Carrion M.Ed<br />
  10. 10. One of the most important benefits of Daily 5 is that teaches students to become independent and to take responsibility for their own learning.<br />Using Daily 5 teachers can address the specific needs of students by working with them in small groups.<br />Teachers also have the opportunity to have regular reading conferences with individual students.<br />Why Daily 5<br />8/18/2011<br />Zoila P. Carrion M.Ed<br />
  11. 11. Collecting and Using Data<br />Teachers keep record of students’ progress in the conferring notebook, which “the sisters” refer to as the Pensieve.<br />Keeping records is an integral part of the teacher’s daily work with children. <br />In the “Pensieve” are included the assessments’ data, conferring sheet, calendar and guided group plans. It helps keep teachers’ time organized, focused and intentional. <br />It makes it easy for students to be participants in their goal setting and progress monitoring. <br />8/18/2011<br />Zoila P. Carrion M.Ed<br />
  12. 12. Daily 5 and CAFE<br />CAFE is an acronym for <br />Comprehension<br />Accuracy<br />Fluency, and <br />Expanding Vocabulary.<br />8/18/2011<br />Zoila P. Carrion M.Ed<br />
  13. 13. How it Works<br />The system includes:<br /> goal-setting with students in individual conferences, <br />posting of goals on a whole-class board,<br /> developing small group instruction based on clusters of students with similar goals, and <br />targeting whole-class instruction based on emerging student needs and fine tuning one- on- one conferring. <br />8/18/2011<br />Zoila P.
