Daily 5

Research has shown that for students to become proficient in literacy they need extended periods of authentic reading and writing. In support of this research, all teachers at Elizabeth Park Schools teach in accordance with the Daily 5 Framework. Daily 5 offers students five choices of activities, to work towards personal literacy goals: Read to Self, Work on Writing, Word Work, Read to Someone and Listen to Reading. Through the Daily 5 model, literacy is explicitly taught where students are provided whole class instruction, small group instruction, partner work and independent practise.
