What is The Daily Five?

  • The Daily Five is a literacy structure that teaches independence and gives children the skills needed to create a lifetime love of reading and writing. The children work on building their stamina until they are successful at being independent.

Components of The Daily Five

  • Read to Self

  • Work on Writing

  • Word Work/Letterland

  • Read to Someone

  • Listen to Reading

Read to Self

  • Children reading to themselves is the first step in Daily Five and is the foundation for creating independent readers and writers.

Work on Writing

  • The writing component of the Daily Five provides additional support children require to become effective writers. Its purpose is to provide daily writing practice.

Read to Someone

  • Reading with someone helps readers, especially developing readers, become more self-sufficient and less reliant on the teacher for assistance. Research shows that taking turns while reading increases reading involvement, attention, and collaboration.

Word Work/ Letterland

During Word Work, we focus on spelling patterns and vocabulary work with children.

  • Collaboration with classmates
