I've used Daily 5 for a couple of years now, but still don't quite feel like I know which strategies to teach to my students. I read about the 6, 5, 4, 3 strategy in figuring out how to choose a strategy for an individual student to work on, but what about the whole class?

How can I choose appropriate strategies to use as whole class mini-lessons? I suppose I could group them based on which CAFE section they need to improve and then teach strategies to small groups based on their needs... but still, what do I do for whole class instruction?

Perhaps you could cross-check with the aligned standards document to see which strategies are the focus in your district?

According to the book, that's exactly what you do.

I also have a question about instruction. This coming year will be my first year attempting CAFE as my main reading instruction (2nd year teaching). I have found the lit-lessons helpful but here is my question. Are all of my lessons based on a read-aloud? I am trying to figure out various ways to teach the strategies, including utilizing anchor charts, but I am getting a little stuck. When practicing the strategy, am I using similar language each time but just demonstrating with a different book? Thank you for any help you can provide!
