I am a teacher in Australia and have been teaching the lower primary years for the last few years. During this time, I implemented the Daily 5 and CAFE system to my students during our literacy blocks and they have absolutely loved it!

This year I will be teaching upper primary for the first time (Years 5 & 6 combined (10 & 11 years old) - and an all boys class too!) and was wondering if there was anything different we should do when introducing Daily 5 and CAFE to the older students? For example, would you still run Read To Someone? Would you introduce more than one element of Daily 5 at a time because the students are older? How would the CAFE menu board look llke in an upper primary class as opposed to a lower primary class?

Any guidance or tips would be very much appreciated :)







Hi Joanna, 

I resonate with this question! There seems to be not much for upper primary in terms of examples of impletation and resources. From your description I think I just found your resource on TeachersPayTeachers! If you have had any luck in finding guidence I would love to hear about it!
