What are the components of Daily 5?

Read to Self

The best way to become a better reader is to practice each day with “Good Fit”

books that you have selected yourself. It’s Fun!

Work on Writing

Just like reading the best way to become a better writer is to write each day.

It’s Fun!

Read to Someone

Partner reading provides opportunities to practice strategies, improve fluency,

check for understanding, and hear your own voice while sharing in the learning


Word Work

Expanded vocabulary leads to greater fluency in reading, therefore increasing

comprehension. Becoming more proficient as a speller leads to writing fluency

and the ability to get your ideas down on paper.

Listen to Reading

Just Hearing fluent and expressive reading of good literature expands your

vocabulary; helps build your stamina and will make you a better reader.

What does CAFE stand for?

A - Accuracy
