Daily 5

Daily 5 is a management system I use during reading workshop.The Daily 5 fosters a lifelong love of reading and writing.  It consists of five tasks that are introduced one at a time. When I introduce each task we discuss what it looks like, sounds like and feels like to engage in the task independently.  Once all 5 tasks are introduced the children work on their stamina to become stronger and more independent readers.

The five tasks include:

  1. Read to Self
  2. Read to Someone
  3. Listen to reading
  4. Work on Writing
  5. Word Work

While the children are engaged in reading and writing activities I am able to work with small groups or confer with children on a one on one.
