    DescriptionDo you love teaching but feel exhausted from the energy you expend cajoling, disciplining, and directing students on a daily basis? If so, you'll want to meet `The Sisters,` Gail Boushey and Joan Moser. Based on literacy learning and motivation research, they created a structure called The Daily Five which has been practiced and refined in their own classrooms for ten years, and shared with thousands of teachers throughout the United States. 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.This book not only explains the philosophy behind the structure, but shows you how to carefully and systematically train your students to participate in each of the five components.Explicit modeling practice, reflecting and refining take place during the launching phase, preparing the foundation for a year of meaningful content instruction tailored to meet the needs of each child.The Daily Five is more than a management system or a curriculum framework; it is a structure that will help students develop the habits that lead to a lifetime of independent literacy.

  • A Must have for every teacher5

    Amanda van Elderen The Daily 5 is a must read for every teacher who wants to improve their teaching of literacy. It's a great read, with very clear instructions on how to teach students about the Daily 5.
    My class is made up mostly of students with special needs, and this program is perfect for their needs, and it has been a fantastic journey to see them begin to love reading! by Amanda van Elderen
