Language Program: The Daily 5

Our class will use the Daily 5 to structure our language program.  I have seen wonderful results in both students' engagement and literacy in using the program. 

Students learn to work independently in 5 areas:
  1. Read to Self
  2. Work on Writing
  3. Word Work
  4. Listen to Reading
  5. Read to Someone
In the meantime, I am able to meet with small guided reading groups, or with individual students.  This week, we will begin to build our "stamina" in Read to Self.  It will be very exciting as we graph how much time we can spend on task.

Here is a powerpoint that describes, in detail, how it works.  You'll be asked to either Open or Save it.  You'll also notice the presentation is called "The Daily 5 in Kindergarten", but the program is applicable from K-8. 

I'm excited to get started, and I'm sure you'll be hearing all about it from your child, too!

Please remember to send a box of tissues and one pair of headphones to school if you have not done so.
