We are implementing Daily 5 and CAFE into our elementary this upcoming year. I teach in Texas. How can I assure my principal that Daily 5 and CAFE are aligned with the TEKS?

Rhonda,
What grade do you teach? A colleague and I went through the TEKS and the CAFE menu a few years ago for 1st , and I have a document with the info in it. I have another document with only the TEKS numbers and CAFE strategies for grades 1-5. If you’d like to see what we did, sent me an email, and I’ll mail them to you.

Suzanne,
That would be so amazing!! My email is [email protected]. I have Tier 2 and 3 reading intervention, and am Literacy Coach for PK-5. I taught first grade for 23 years, and stopped 7 years ago to do intervention. This is my first year to be Literacy Coach. We are a very small school district, with only one teacher per grade level. We have never been aligned with our reading in elementary. I am suggessting to our principal that we implement Balanced Literacy, and Daily 5 and CAFE. Do you still use Daily 5 and CAFE? If so, are you pleased? Do you see growth in your students’ reading?
Thank you so very much!!
Rhonda

We LOVE Daily 5 and CAFE!! Our first and second grades use it universally, some 3rd, 4th and 5th but not all. We are at the opposite end of size–we have over 900 kids in our school, with 7-9 sections at each grade level :).
We see our students much more involved in the reading process and working independently. The kids love it, too. If we have an assembly or something, the kids are like, “What?? you mean we miss our Daily 5 today?” We have seen amazing growth in our readers, not only in their reading levels, but in the confidence they have in their reading abilities.
It’s also helped our teachers become more aware of conferring with and discovering the specific strategies their learners need.
I also was a first grade teacher for 17 years before moving into reading intervention and teacher support. I do have to pull small groups across grade levels, but have used the principles of Daily 5 and the CAFE strategies in my small groups.
I’ll send you my documents this afternoon.

Suzanne,
I would love to see the CAFE strategies you aligned with the TEKS for grades 1-5. Do you have anything for Kindergarten? We are trying to implement D5 & CAFE school-wide and this would be so helpful to all of the teachers. I have been using D5 for a few years as a Kindergarten teacher, but this is my first real foray into CAFE and I feel like I can use all the help I can get. If you are willing to share them my email is

Thanks so much.

I attended training in Dallas this weekend!  It was one of the best I have been to except for the cold room.  Thank you for evefryitng.  I am an instructional coach for MISD and would love for you to share teh TEKS for K-5 to incorpaorte with CAFE lessons and daily 5  structure.

Also, you shared a fantastic planning tool for scheduling minutes for ficus lessons and stamina.  Is that availble?  I would love for my teachers to see where the miniutes go in a day:)

Kindly,

I want to make sure I'm giving you the info you are asking about--do you mean the chart that showed lesson/round/lesson/round with expectaions for teachers and students?  Or, are you referring to the number of minutes students can attend?  Let me know, and I'll post the infor for you :).

Thanks!

I am in the same situation. Does anyone have this for 6th grade reading? At the Dallas workshop, it was mentioned that there would be an alignment coming soon. Is this available, yet?

We are just beginning The Daily 5 in our district. I teach second grade…could I possibly have the 2nd grade TEKS alignment with the CAFE menu? That would be a huge blessing!!! Thank you!!! -Traci

Hi Suzanne,

Could you email me the document with the alignment of TEKS/CAFE? I teach 3rd grade, and I am implementing Daily Five for the first time this year. I would love to share this information with my instructional coach at school. My email is: [email protected]

Thank you.
