I have used Daily 5 for four years now and use it as a basis for my programme. The aspects that are involved are read to self, read to someone, word work, work on writing and listen to reading. I find that all five of these are fundamental parts to practice and learn in reading time, with students building key skills while completing these. I also have a few other rotations included of other things like teacher time, work on ipad, word wall, free play, playdough, lego and crafts. These all make up important aspects of my programme.
I first began with Daily 5 in 2017 - I had done the research, read the book, scoped for resources before implementing it 'the right way'. It was such a success and since then I have implemented a lot of student agency based choices which came from the daily 5 implementation.
My reading tumble is more of a choice board now where students can choose what they would like to do in reading time as long as they cross it off on their card. This is to create ownership over their choices and be held accountable for the choices they make in class too. They love being able to choose what they want to do and I love seeing them do it!
I hope this has helped unpack a little on how reading is run in my classroom. Obviously things might be different this year with my newbies but I know I will be doing Daily 5 again in a basic tumble to begin the year. If you have any questions about how I run reading please get in contact firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a message over facebook or instagram.
