Daily 5

A management structure that can help “fit it all in”


What is and is not daily 5

What is and is not Daily 5?

  • Daily 5 is not a program, centers that change every week, stations filled with busywork or play time

  • Daily 5 is:

    • Management structure that provides time to differentiate instruction

      • Whole group lessons

      • Small group “strategy” lessons

      • Conferring time for individual needs

    • Supports independence in reading and writing

    • Provides ownership in learning through choice


How can this fit in my classroom

How Can This Fit in My Classroom?

  • Tailored between K – 6 classrooms (can be “Daily 2, 3 or 4”)


Wait does work on writing replace writing workshop

Wait… Does Work on Writing Replace Writing Workshop??

  • NO!!!

  • Separate Writing Workshop Block

  • What is Work on Writing for?

    • Providing Choice and Creativity on topic and genre

      • Cards, letters, emails, sequential stories, comic strips, etc.

    • Can extend time from Writing Workshop, too!


How does research support daily 5

How Does Research Support Daily 5?

  • Read to Self:

    • Reading Just Right Books (texts matched with each child at 99% accuracy) daily for 60+ minutes

  • Read to Someone:

    • Time to practice strategies, fluency, retelling and comprehension

  • Work on Writing:

    • Choice outside of writing workshop, time to develop skills, reading response, handwriting

  • Listen to Reading (younger readers):

    • Time to listen to fluent reading and expands vocabulary

  • Word Work:

    • Fluency in writing, Sitton Spelling, Words Their Way, etc…


Daily 5 choice

Daily 5: Choice!

  • Choice is highly motivational

  • Kids in charge of learning

  • RegieRoutman suggests:

    • Demonstrating, teaching, guiding, monitoring, evaluating and goal setting by teacher along with choice in reading books provides an environment for reading success

  • Heart of choice and effective teaching and learning :

    • Knowing expectations, gaining skills and taking responsibility


Basic structure

Basic Structure

  • 1st Mini - Lesson (Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency or Expanding Vocabulary)

    • 10 – 15 minutes of modeled/shared instruction

  • 20 – 45 minutes independent choice

    • Teacher: small groups, individual conferences

  • 2nd Mini-Lesson(Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency or Vocabulary)

    • 10 – 15 minutes of modeled/shared instruction

  • 20 -45 minutes independent choice

    • Teacher: small groups, individual conferences

  • 3rd Mini-Lesson (Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency or Vocabulary)

  • minutes independent choice

    • Teacher: small groups, individual conferences

    • 10 – 15 minutes of modeled/shared instruction

  • 20 – 45 minutes independent choice


Mini lessons

Mini-Lessons

  • Mini-Lessons are a “menu of strategies” aka CAFÉ menu

  • Can be used in any order depending on studentneeds

    ****Daily 5 is the management structure whereas CAFÉ is the lessons to be plugged in based on comprehension, accuracy, fluency or expanding vocabulary****


Sounds intriguing but

Sounds intriguing but…

  • Do I have to start it at the beginning of the year?

    • No!

  • Do I have to go in order?

    • No! It is recommended that 3 or 4 – 5 just focus on reading and writing as choices

    • K – 2 or K – 3 is recommended to teach read to self and work on writing first then it is up to teacher

  • Are there materials to buy?

    • No!


But still will it fit

But still…Will it fit?

  • How Daily 2, Daily 3 or Daily 4 fits in your classroom is up to you

  • Maintain integrity of fostering independent readers and writers

  • RTI time can be a round of D5

    • Example: In First Grade we have a half hour of RTI time and so I teach a “bonus” lesson for higher readers/writers and then give them that choice…RTI children are marked with “Literacy Special” as choice


Other things to consider

Other Things to Consider

  • Conferring Notebook can also hold small group lesson planner, assessments, observations, etc. for easy access at benchmark meetings and conferences

    • I can help you set it up based on what D5 suggests

  • This is a way to help teachers fit in all the curriculum we are required to fit in and a way for organized record keeping, assessments, etc.
