Hi, Ms. Martha:

Daily 5 is a reading center rotation schedule where students may work on: Read to Self, Listen to Reading, Work on Writing, Word Work, or Read to Someone. As Megan mentioned in her post, the Daily 5 structure/routines must be discussed and practiced for at least a month before you have the students work independently on the activities. However, once the students know the routines and expectations, the Daily 5 is great for literacy centers. Some teachers may call it the Daily 4 or Daily 3 if they don't implement or utilize all five components during that particular literacy block. Also, what I like about the D5 structure is that in between rotations, you may teach mini-lessons to the class (comprehension, fluency, phonics, etc). The structure keeps the students moving back-and-forth between lessons and centers. I am still learning what works best with this center-structure, but I have enjoyed implementing it. Also, I use the Raz-Kids online iPad texts and Think Central online iPad texts for center stations each day.
