The Daily 5 Text to Teach Online Seminar will provide you with all of the basics associated with getting Daily 5 up and going in your classroom!

What should I expect?

The Daily 5 Text to Teach Online Seminar provides a focused deep dive into The Daily 5, Second Edition. This on-demand seminar will take you chapter by chapter through the text providing clarity in your thinking along the way.


You will learn

  • the WHY and HOW of Daily 5 along with the brain research that supports implementation.
  • the strategies we use to build stamina and independence in all students.

  • how to launch each task, and
  • ways to support students that have a difficult time building independence and stamina.

How does it work?

For each* chapter of The Daily 5, Second Edition you will:

  • Watch a video overview where our instructor, Allison Behne, highlights specific points of interest in the Chapter.
  • Read the chapter and develop your own understanding, questions and reflections on the text.
  • Read 1-2 specific articles that support your chapter reading.
  • Take 1-2 video "field trips" to classrooms where you can watch a teacher apply the concepts, consider how you would implement them in your own classroom.
  • Watch a brief wrap-up video to tie it all together that provides possible next steps.
  • Take notes in your own printable guidebook with your aha moments from what you read and hear.
