Guided Reading & Daily 5 

Daily 5


We LOVE Daily Five time!  If your child comes home and talks about it, I am so thrilled!  Daily Five is our literacy block in our classroom.  It is not a program, but a management system that allows students to work on authentic reading practice while I meet with small groups and individual students.  In the beginning of the year, we will spend a great deal of time learning how learning looks like and how learning does not look during Daily Five time.  This explicit teaching of behavior allows Daily Five time to run smoothly, as all students know exactly what to do, so that I can focus my attention on very individualized reading instruction.


During Daily Five time, students will participate in teacher led mini-lessons on reading strategies, phonics, and guided reading skilla.  Students also will participate in self-selected literacy activities.  Your child will come to love and crave this time each day to become a fantastic reader and writer!!!
