I have not read this book yet, but I’ve read several blogs about ‘The Daily Five’ and seen it referenced in several places. It is not a reading program, but an organizational framework and set of strategies that a teacher can implement. The Daily Five is a series of literacy tasks (reading to self, reading with someone, writing, word work, and listening to reading) which students complete daily while the teacher meets with small groups or confers with individuals. If you know anything about this topic, please comment.
Here is the link to an elementary principal’s blog. Two of the posts are about implementing this strategy schoolwide.
Be sure to watch this youtube video with interviews from students and teachers who have experienced The Daily Five.
Another great resource is this youtube video about what happens after kids leave elementary school. High school students share the truths about their reading habits and it’s eye-opening.
