Every week students are able to find books that are a “good fit” and use them throughout the week to complete their reading time and activities based on their picks! We are able to check out books twice per week and spend some quality time in the library.
We have noticed since implementing Daily 5 that the students have an excitement and love for reading. The students are able to pair up with their peers and share their reading and books with their classroom friends. We are able to teach the students the importance of encouraging our friends with their reading and that every student is at a different reading level.
Daily 5 provides that natural differentiation in reading and encourages the students to appreciate all types of literature. We have had a great time promoting inclusion in our classroom and Daily 5 has brought so many opportunities to do so!
