Hello fellow teachers. I just recently read the Daily 5 and am very inspired by it. I can’t wait to start implementing it! I have been teaching abroad for the past two years. I am currently working in China with a first and second grade class. They have limited English but I am still working with them on reading and writing everyday. Anyone have helpful suggestions/strategies they can help me for launching the Daily 5 with my class? Thanks so much for your support! Happy New Year!






I think one of the first lessons with them (as with all kids being introduced to Daily 5) would be the “3 Ways to Read a Book”. This will build the selection of books they can read during read to self. Along with this, I think the importance of your read-alouds is so important. This is where the kiddos are going to hear great modeling of oral language and help them with the understanding of how the language works in written form, as well.
One thing that I think is hard for all of us is to take the time for Read to Self as the cornerstone to Daily 5. Make sure they have enough stamina there before moving on to Work on Writing.
