“The Daily 5 is more than a management system or a curriculum framework, it is a structure that helps students develop the daily habits of reading, writing, and working independently that will lead to a lifetime of literacy independence”.
Our staff have been, or are in the process of completing Daily 5 Training.
Read to Self
Children reading to themselves is the first step in the Daily 5 and is the foundation for creating independent readers and writers.
Read to Someone
Reading with someone helps readers, especially developing readers, become more self-sufficient and less reliant on the teacher for assistance.
During Word Work we focus on spelling and vocabulary work with children
The writing component of the Daily 5 provides the additional support children require to become effective writers.
Listen to Reading
Listening to reading is valuable for developing fluency and vocabulary.
