  • It is evident that the structure of our reading workshop using the Daily 5 and CAFE has increased student engagement, motivation, and a higher level of literacy proficiency across grade levels at my school site."
    Stephanie B.—Principal
  • I feel more confident when I am presenting my introductory lessons on building stamina. This is the result of watching actual videos of teachers introducing lessons."
    Sherry R.—Teacher, First Grade
  • Daily 5/CAFE have been part of my daily routine for 9 years now. I was moved to a self-contained 2 years ago and of course Math daily 3 was my answer to implementing math. I can't imagine teaching any other way. I coax and coach my colleagues to use Daily 5/CAFE, and Math Daily 3 all of the time!!"

Lead Students to Literacy: Daily 5 and CAFE

Collaborative, choice-based approaches

Daily 5 is a classroom management framework for teaching literacy and independent learning behavior. Students read and write on their own while you teach one-on-one and small groups.

The CAFE Literacy System ensures that students master reading skills through a set of strategies you teach them to apply while they complete daily reading and writing activities. You use ongoing assessment to match each student with the best strategy or strategies related to each of the four key components of successful reading.

Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, and Expanding Vocabulary.

Understanding by doing

Math Daily 3 is a classroom management framework 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.
