We care about you and your students.
Not knowing where to go for effective resources is disheartening, because we care so deeply for our students. We know not all students are reaching their learning potential, but we also know they can if we address their individual needs.
We believe that all students can learn and that they deserve equitable, timely, and effective teaching that evokes joy in their learning. All of the content on The Daily CAFE reflects those beliefs, and all of it has been field-tested by teachers and students.
Join thousands of teachers who come to The Daily CAFE regularly for their teaching resource needs and have committed themselves to a lifelong learning journey—just as we expect from our students.

A simple and effective management structure for any teacher’s literacy block.
Daily 5 goes beyond the five authentic tasks from which it gets its name. It’s your solution for managing student behaviors, scheduling your literacy block, supporting brain-based and interest-based learning, meeting students where they are, and building lifelong readers and learners.
A clear, organized system for teaching, assessing, keeping track of student learning, and making learning visible. CAFE stands for the literacy goals of Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, and Expand Vocabulary, and the CAFE Menu contains the strategies readers use to meet the four main goals of reading.
The CAFE Literacy System gives a structure for ongoing assessment to monitor each student's progress and a plan to help shift instruction so that each student is successful. It provides a common language to talk about reading development and proficiency. Students feel ownership and accountability over their learning.
Math Daily 3
A classroom management structure that gives students hands-on opportunities to explore math concepts on their own. While students work independently, you teach sub-groups and assess progress one-on-one.
As with Daily 5, this framework can be adapted to district-adopted curriculums and state mandates. Students develop deep conceptual understanding, mathematical proficiency, and a true love of mathematics.
