Daily 5

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

  • Word Work

  • 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!

Home Reading

Home Reading Bags & Recording Books are continuing to go home. Please record what your child reads each night. If they are reading a chapter book just record the title of the book and the chapter read. Students should be reading for at least 15 minutes each night. If you have any questions please let me know. Once a recording sheet is finished students will choose a prize from the Treasure Box!
