Daily 5
Daily 5

"The Daily Five" are the tasks listed below that help your child improve his/her reading and writing skills independently or following a group lesson in the classroom.


Read to self.

Read with someone.

Work on writing.

Listen to reading.

Work with words.


One thing you might notice is that your child won't bring home as many worksheets. While they keep children busy, they don't really result in a high level of learning. Instead, your child will be taught to choose "Good Fit Books" or books they can read, understand, and find interesting during "The Daily Five."

Please think of your child's classroom as you visit garage sales or clean your child's bookcase. Books that are in nice condition can be added to classroom libraries, making them as appealing as browsing 
in a bookstore!
