The Daily 5 and Literacy CAFÉ is a whole school literacy program.
The Daily 5 is a series of literacy tasks which students complete daily while the teacher meets with small groups or confers with individuals. The Daily 5 is more than a management system or a curriculum framework – it is a structure that will help students develop the daily habits of reading, writing and working with peers that will lead to a lifetime of independent literacy.
Assessing young readers involves more than determining a reading level and moving them onto the next. The CAFÉ Menu, which is used to support the Daily 5, helps students understand and master different strategies used by successful readers.
Grade 1/2 students will will be required to read to an adult (or their buddy) before school and fill in their ‘reading log’ as well as change their take home book which is to be kept in their library bag
