1 What is A guide for parents

2 What is the Daily 5?  A way of structuring reading instruction so that every student is engaged in meaningful literacy tasks.  Students receive explicit whole group instruction and then are given independent practice time to read and write independently while the teacher provides focused instruction to individuals and small groups.

3 What is the Daily 5?  When it is up and running, students will be engaged in the following activities:  Read to Self  Work on Writing  Read to Someone  Word Work  Listen to Reading

4 What does it look like each day ?  Students will gather for mini-lessons followed by choice times where students choose one of the five tasks and work independently while the teacher meets with individuals and small groups.

5 Read to Self  Teach students the three ways to read a book:  Read the pictures  Retell a story you already know  Read the words  Combination of books kids choose themselves and books at their reading level.

6 Book Boxes  Each student in my room has a book box. Their book box contains "Good Fit Books" they have chosen. I let my class "Shop for Books" as they are ready for new material each morning.  This builds a sense of responsibility and provides these young readers a way to monitor their own reading abilities.

7 I Pick “Good Fit Books”  The students are taught from the beginning about choosing and selecting books that are just right for their reading level. They are called "Good Fit Books".  1. I pick a book  2. P urpose (What's my purpose for choosing this book? )  3. I nterest (Does this book interest me?)  4. C omprehend (Can I comprehend what I'm reading?)  5. K now (Do I know most of the words?)

8 Writing  We have a separate Writer’s Workshop, but during Daily 5, students have total choice on the format of their writing.  They may work on writing letters, making books, or journaling.

9 Read to Someone  Students love having the chance to share a book with a friend.  We practice how to help a friend who is stuck on a word and how to ask questions about the books we are reading.

10 Word Work  Practice spelling, vocabulary, phonemic awareness, and phonics.  Making words with BOGGLE  Cookie sheets with magnetic letters  Magnetic words  Whiteboards with colorful markers  Word sorts

11 Listen to Reading  Students will listen to stories from our Treasures series on CD or other books with audio cassette or CD.  Fill out a listening response post

12 Beginning the Daily 5  In order to teach students the independence needed for this program, the first few weeks are spent on building reading and writing stamina, learning the behaviors of Daily 5, creating a sense of urgency, and fostering a classroom community.

13 Building Stamina  Much like exercising our bodies, students can not be expected to independently read or write for minutes right away.  We begin with just 2 minutes a day, so everyone can be successful and work up from there.  We chart our progress, and kids are excited to see their stamina grow.

14 Learning Behaviors of Daily 5  Class brainstorms desirable activities for each part of Daily 5 – these are posted and referred to frequently.  Students model correct behaviors and in-correct behaviors.  Students check in each day and reflect on their learning behaviors.

15 Creating a Sense of Urgency  We all want to know why we have to do something, and no one wants to hear “because you have to”.  We explain the importance of each of the task and often refer to the value of practicing reading and writing.  Establishes motivation and on-task behavior.

16 Fostering Community  Begins with getting to know each other and valuing each person’s contributions.  Helps students hold each other accountable for behaviors, learning, effort, and kindness.  We celebrate each individual’s accomplishments.

17 Benefits of Daily 5  Children cannot become better readers and develop a love for reading without having time to actually read and write.  Providing choice is highly motivational and puts kids in charge of their learning.  Students have lots of individualized time with the teacher and help develop their own goals to work on independently.  Provides structure, short intervals of repeated practice, and time to explore – exactly what children this age need!
