Daily Five/Cafe Menu

The Daily 5™ is a framework for structuring literacy time so students develop lifelong habits of reading, writing, and working independently.

Students select from five authentic reading and writing choices, working independently toward personalized goals, while the teacher meets individual needs through whole-group and small-group instruction, as well as one-on-one conferring. These choices include
  • Read to Self,
  • Work on Writing,
  • Read to Someone,
  • Listen to Reading, and
  • Word Work.              

 

CAFE

The Literacy CAFE System helps students understand and master
the four key components of successful reading:
Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, and Expanding Vocabulary.

How does it work?

The CAFE Menu breaks each component—comprehension, accuracy, fluency, and expanding vocabulary—into significant strategies that support each goal. Posted on the classroom wall and built throughout the year, it serves as a visual reminder of whole-class instruction as well as individual student goals.
