Thank you so much for thinking of me ladies! I am honored to be teaming up with you both! At my old district, I created my own schedule. At my new district, the schedule is made for the entire grade level, and it works out fabulously!
Sunday, September 30, Daily 5!!! I am super excited to share with all my bloggy friends about how the Daily 5 has been going in my classroom!!! These books give you a lot of great information about how to launch the CAFE and Daily 5, but the hardest part for me was how to launch them together I heard this was crazy, but why wouldn't you launch them together My second grade team and I work long hours over the summer to create a launching guide that combined the Daily 5 and the CAFE.
Here is a picture of how I display my i-charts in my classroom: I will go back and refer to these if a I have a student or group of students who don't do a part of the Daily 5 correctly that day. During their own time aka recess we will talk about what the i-chart says and they will practice again.
I know some might think this is cruel, but it has really gotten the point across to some of my students who thought they could just slack around after the launching time was over. A second major part of the Daily 5, is to have an interesting attention getting sound.
It is crazy how this gets the students attention in one turn!! I actually use it for our math rotations as well. The kids have really responded to it, so it was totally worth the 20 bucks I spent!
The next part of the Daily 5 is to have a set area for each component. I have labeled my areas, thanks to my bff making these cute labels!
Work on writing tubs match their table colors. I have the supply person from each table go get their folders before we start Daily 5 therefore they have them on their desk already when they get to writing. The students have to do the activity on the shelf on the left first.
The activity on the right is from Abby's Spelling Unit. I pre-cut, copy, etc. Check out Abby's store by clicking here! I have tried to let them pick their partners, but it just didn't work out. I have therefore made a list of who they will read with each day. Under my chair I keep their checking for understanding bookmarks to practice with their partner.
It seemed no matter how much we practiced and modeled they still are too loud when they do it on their own. I am getting a student from a local college on Monday to help out during reading and I think I know exactly where I am going to put her!
I have found it was really helpful to put the directions on how to get back on the site by our icon. Many of my students "accidentally" click the little x and then they are logged off. They know if they can't get it back on, then they have to just go back to their desk and read. I don't have an icon for read to self, because they do that quietly at their desks.
This is what we based our stamina on, when we were building stamina each day! I have been truly amazed at how my students are engaged in their own reading and writing. I think Daily 5 has worked wonders at our building.
One thing I think it is important to remember is that the Daily 5 and CAFE are not a curriculum, they are a tool or resource. David Goes to School Cross Checking: In those Shoes Monitor and Fix up: For example we also read some of the other David books after we read David Goes to School.
During the launching phase are theme was centered around All about Me and then went into our Space theme in September. Click here to get your own CAFE label strategies for free!
