  8. What’s the “Buzz” With the Daily Five? • 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 to "bee"have (and how to NOT behave!) 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 a 100-minute block of teacher led mini-lessons on reading strategies, phonics, and grammar- all of which come from our Common Core Curriculum. Students also will participate in self-selected literacy activities.  Your child will come to love and crave this time each day to "bee"come a fantastic reader and writer.

  9. The Daily Five “In Action”! Read to self Students each have a book box full of "right fit” books that they read from during read to self. Read to someoneStudents can practice developing their fluency by reading to someone.  This student is holding a cardstock "check" so she remembers to check her comprehension. Work on writingStudents work on original stories, lists, poems, letters, etc... during work on writing.  The writing area is stocked with idea starters, decorative papers, pens, markers, and spelling aides.

  10. Work on wordsStudents practice weekly spelling and vocabulary words through hands-on activities like Wikki Sticks, using magnets and stamps to make words, dot makers, and letter cutouts.  They can also practice sight words. Listen to readingStudents use, CD players, Tumble Books, Book Flix, and tape players to listen to fluent reading.
