USING THE DAILY FIVE and CAFÉ MENU to Support Balanced Literacy Presented by Michelle Nichol, Elementary Supervisor of Instruction August 2016 Daily Five A student-driven management structure designed to fully engage students in activities that support literacy~ reading and writing Creates routines and procedures that foster independent literacy routines that become habit The Daily 5 Tasks Creating a Sense of Urgency Read to Self The best way to become a better reader is to practice each day with Good Fit books that you have selected yourself. It s Fun! Work on Writing Just like reading the best way to become a better writer is to write each day. It s Fun! Read to Someone Partner reading provides opportunities to practice strategies, improve fluency, check for understanding, and hear your own voice while sharing in the learning community. Word Work Expanded vocabulary leads to greater fluency in reading, therefore increasing comprehension. Becoming more proficient as a speller leads to writing fluency and the ability to get your ideas down on paper. Listen to Reading Just Hearing fluent and expressive reading of good literature expands your vocabulary; helps build your stamina and will make you a better reader. Boushey & Moser The 2 Sisters 10 Steps to Teaching and Learning Independence 1. Identify what is to be taught 2. Setting Purpose Sense of Urgency 3. Brainstorm behaviors desired using an I chart 4. Model most desirable behaviors 5. Model least desirable behaviors then desirable 6. Place students around the room 7. Everyone practice and build stamina (3 minutes) 8. Stay Out of the Way 9. Quiet Signal Come back to Group 10.Group Check In How Did You Do? Daily 5 Key Vocabulary I-Charts - What students/teacher are doing Anchor Charts What Good Reading/Writing Looks Like it anchors their learning Launching - Training them on what to do management system Stamina - Building Independency Daily Five Essentials A Model of Research Based Tasks reading and writing (5 choices) Teach your students how to set goals, manage their time, and apply skills taught in whole class and small group instruction Systems 10 steps of teaching and learning (building independence) Structure management of your literacy block Goal setting and focused, tailored instruction is key to accelerating student learning Accelerate Student Learning The literacy tasks alone are not enough CAFE is a guide and system to focus our instruction, help students set reading and behavior goals, monitor their progress CAFÉ Comprehension Accuracy Fluency Expand Vocabulary Purpose + Choice = Motivation Provide students with a purpose when completing Daily Five rotations. This purpose should connect to instruction Provide students with choice. This could be with good fit books or this could also be with instructional activities. Choice boards are an excellent avenue for this. When students know what is expected and are given choice they are motivated, want to learn, and feel good about themselves as a learner. When launching Daily Five The Daily Five book explicitly tells you how to introduce each rotation. Procedures, routines, and daily lesson plans Teach students the WHY and develop that sense of URGENCY Create I charts, model together, and practice to build STAMINA Book boxes with good fit books that are motivating to students are essential to the success of the Daily Five Teach your students how to be self reflection and always have frequent check ins The CAFÉ Board 4 components set up across the top As a strategy is introduced it is put up on a sentence strip under the category by a child Children put sticky notes under strategy they are working on Why CAFÉ? Guide for instruction CAFÉ board is a visual aid to help students Collection of strategies the learner can access to apply reading strategies during each reading experience along the Gradual Release of Responsibility (with or without the teacher) Accountability: You now know X. Let s practice use it!... ALL the time!!! Shared Lesson Identify what is to be taught/retaught whole class, and share the~ secret to success with the strategy *** See Ready Reference Forms Teach the strategy. Students practice with partners. Select a student to write and illustrate the CAFÉ Menu strategy card (the first time it is taught) Students add the new strategy to their personal menu (depending on the grade level) Parts of the Pensieve Keeping track form This is a simple grid with each child s name on it. Not everyone will be seen every day. Strategy groups, Guided Reading, Literature Circles form These forms are used to plan lessons for children with similar goals. Pensieve Part 2 Cafe Menu Reading Conference Form Writing Conference form Touch points are used as a way of documenting progress. A fast way to record a child s progress toward their goal, is a point system. Individual Conferences 1. Assess individual students. 2. Discuss findings with students. 3. Set goal and identify strategies with students. 4. Student declares goals on menu and in notebook. 5. Teacher fills out individual Reading Conference form. 6. Teacher fills out strategy groups, guided reading, or literature circle forms 7. Instruction. Assessment/Conferences Meet one-on-one or in small groups with students Talk to students using the language of the menu One of the areas I am going to help you with to become a better reader this year is Set goals and identify areas of need CAFÉ Considerations CAFÉ menu to guide instruction but student behaviors are the key Grading touch points with daily small group and individual: 1-below, 2-approaching, 3-meeting, 4- exceeding When do you move on to a new strategy? After 4-5 opportunities with 3 s and 4 s as touch points. Determine growth with success overtime More Considerations Any assessment is only as good as the action that arises from it. Fair is not always equal! Plan Whole Group Instruction from formative assessments. Continually connect new strategies to strategies already on the CAFÉ Menu board. Focus on this child this moment. How can we hold our students accountable? Daily Five weekly scheduling with constant check in Check-Ins between rounds Reader s Response Journals Interactive Notebooks Rubrics Self Assessments Activities must connect to skills and strategies being taught in Reading and Writing Workshop Credits: The Daily Five and The CAFÉ Book by The Sisters
