Clip to ScrapBook #3

Remember, you are conferring while D5 is happening. BE EXTREMELY PATIENT AND DILLIGENT IN THE BEGINNING! I really follow the D5 book and do the anchor charts, the modeling, and practicing. I do only read to self for a couple of weeks to build stamina and make student understand how important it is to do it the correct way so that that each is respectful to the next with the Read To Self anchor chart. I agree the the previous post, with CAFE it is important to begin with Comprension. after all, if we can't remember what read, why read? I differ slightly in my second most important, but I believe it is because of the age difference. You are dealing with 4th graders. I am teaching 3rd graders. Many are still learning to read and need accuracy. I hit this hard especially if comprehension is not going well. Fluency. Also plays an important roll because if they can't "accurately" pronounce a word and are stuck on it, the "fluency" is now off. That will totally destroy the comprehension. Expand Vocabulary is a great one for my high students. You will have students strung all over the CAFE board.

I am excited for you and remember when I began 6 years ago how excited I was. I was frustrated from time to time and the learning process continued until I felt I had it where I wanted it. If you get stuck, frustrated, need help, this is the place to come. I wish you all the luck and success with this wonderful way to help students become better readers!
