I am sure many of you have heard your child talking about "The Daily 5". The Daily 5 is a way of structuring the reading block so every student is independently engaged in meaningful literacy tasks. These research-based tasks are ones that will have the biggest effect on student reading and writing achievement, as well as help encourage children who love to read and write. Student receive explicit whole group instruction and then are given independent practice time to read and write independently while I provide focused, instruction to individuals and small groups of students.
