Miss Greck's Class
Builders at Work
We have just begun our Daily 5 and Literacy CAFE adventure.
Daily 5 is the structure we use to plan our Literacy Blocks. Children will be busy completing meaningful literacy tasks:
Read to self
Work on writing
Listen to reading
Read to Someone
While the students are engaged in their literacy choices, I will be teaching small groups and individuals.
CAFE is what we study during the Daily 5 time. CAFE is an acronym for the four major components of reading:
C for Comprehension
A for Accuracy
F for Fluency
E for Expanding Vocabulary
Your child will learn reading strategies within each category. These strategies will become tools that help them become better readers and writers.
If you have any questions about CAFE or Daily 5 feel free to contact me!
