The Daily 5: Breaking It Down (Part 3)

Hi friends.
Before the summer gets away, I'd like to share the third (and final part) of my look at the updated Daily 5.  Part 3 focuses on The CAFE and Math Daily 3.
When The Daily 5 Second Edition was published, I was super psyched to see there was a chapter on Math Daily 3.  I was so excited, I actually had to make myself wait to read the math chapter.  #totalnerdalert
The CAFE and Math Daily 3 are two more ways the authors of The Daily 5 enrich classroom instruction and help students take ownership of their learning.

I hope these Daily 5 breakdowns have been a helpful review or have inspired you to take the leap and implement it in your own classroom.
Each year, the Daily 5 has looked a little different in my classroom.  However, the training outlined during the "launch" has seriously upped my classroom management, because students really understand what is expected of them during literacy and math time.  The Daily 5 has worked great with my students.
By the way, if you would like to read a little more about how our class started with Math Daily 3, click here.
Have a great week!


  1. Thank you for all of your posts about Daily 5 ! I have loved them! I have recently found your blog and love your tpt products and blog posts! I am looking forward to your posts about the upcoming year. I would really like to see what you do your first couple weeks!--Thanks, Chris

  2. Thank you for this awesome break down of the daily 5! I am currently reading the book, and your posts have made it a lot more easier to understand. I do have a question.. Do you only work with a small group during the "math with someone"? If so what is the teacher doing when the other math rotations are going on.
    Thank you
