How to use Daily 5/CAFE in your Middle School Classroom
By: Elizabeth Penaroyo

To understand the framework and importance of The Daily 5 and CAFE
How you can implement them into your middle school classroom
Strategies for middle school Daily 5
Daily 5 is not.....
A curriculum
A pacing guide
A district framework
A replacement for school's current system
Read to Someone

Students are practicing fluency, expression, comprehension, and engage in learning
EEKK (elbow to elbow-knee to knee)
Check for understanding
I read-you read
Choral read
Reading one book, students share one book, with both students holding a corner of the book
Listen to Reading
Students will hear good literature and fluency
They are learning new words which will expand their vocabulary and improve their reading skills.
Work on Writing

Students practice writing everyday to become a better writer
They can work on writing of their choice
Word Work
Students use different materials to work on word study (phonics, spelling, vocabualry developement)
The Pupose is to increase students' word knowledge

*Students can use whiteboards, magnetic letters, Wikki stix, stamps, clay, games, and etc.
Daily 5 Structure
Students meet for a mini lesson as a whole group for 5-10 minutes
After whole group less, students start Daily 5 rotations
Each group will be having direct instruction,guided reading or writing, conferring, or assessing session with the teacher
Students will be working independently going through their daily 5 tasks of their choice
There are 3-4 independent work periods
Assessments for Daily 5 & Cafe
Why is Daily 5 important?
It's a student driven management system that is structure that is designed to fully engage students in reading & writing
Teacher Driven
Low student engagement
busy work activities
Little time spent reading
Student Driven
High Student engagement
meaningful reading & writing
majority of time spent reading & writing
Anchor Charts use in Daily 5
"I"/anchor charts: Large charts created based on what students have said
They create a visual where students can refer to
Each Daily 5 needs to be modeled with an "I"/anchor chart
Getting your classroom set up for Daily 5
designated meeting area to meet with groups
designated area where you as the teacher will meet with your whole group
classroom library
storage for students' good fit books
listening center
area for writing materials
Easel for anchor charts-for modeling
space for daily 5 anchor charts
4th grade Daily 5 in action
5 Components of Daily 5
What is CAFE?
It's an Acronym
It's what the students are learning in their whole groups, small groups, or one on one
They are applying what they are learning in Daily 5 rotations
Students/Teachers are setting goals
There are Teacher conferences
*Strategies are chosen from this list based ongoing assessments
(Boushey, Moser)
*Check in-Mini share-Whole Group-Students check in and share about their round
These assessments help monitor children's growth by showing what they already learned and where they need to be nudged next.
Anecdotal records
Running records
Developmental Reading Assessment
Individual Reading inventories
In Cafe, when the strategy is achieved it is posted on the board.
Expand Vocabulary
Teaching Daily 5....Technically Daily 3 to Middle School Students
Middle School only has 3 tasks to complete
Read to Self or Read to partner, Work on Writing, and Word Work
Middle School students can complete one a day
They can choose which one to do.
Students must complete all 3 tasks, before they start over
CAFE is the same, just shorter time
Start Up
In beginning for 4 weeks, train students to be independent
Use 10 steps of independence chart to teach students how to read to self, work on writing, giving enough time to build stamina
Have a designated meeting area for when the whole class meets
Give students book/journal boxes-Easy for teachers to grade and for teachers to prepare for conferences
Use Anchor Charts-this gives middle school students reminders
Incorrectly/correctly model how to act at each station
Daily 3 Example Schedule

2 minute self start-Students check in and decide which task to complete that day.
15 minutes of Daily 3/meet with students for individual or group strategy work
Whole group 20 minute lesson, using Anchor charts
13 minutes of practice
2 minutes of clean up-Students keep D3 work in their binders
Teacher can collect once a week or more if you wish
Teaching Strategies
Read to Self
Students are required to have one activity completed each time they do Read to Self
Teach students about I-Pick/Good Pick books for Read to Self time
Students Read to Self while the teacher confers individually with each student
Reading Strategies Tic Tac Toe
Work on Writing
Create a character exercise
There will be a dozen pictures cut out from magazines of people or animals doing interesting things
Students will pick one photo and paste it into their writing journal
A few ideas may be written on the board, such as,"Where does your character live?" "Who are your characters friends?" "Describe your character"
Students will then write about it in their writing journals
Word Work
Root word puzzles
*Choose 7-8 puzzles for students to practice each week.
Read to Someone
