daily 5 and cafe for first grade

Does anyone have a good way of teaching daily 5 and cafe to first graders? Kind of like a cheat sheet for the little guys. I have seen Cafe for dummies, but it seems to me that there was one for the younger set too. Thanks so much.

Did you post in the Peony Room board? That is based all around CAFE/Daily 5. I would love to know too because I teach 1st grade and this will be my first year implementing it.

Daily five for 1st

Me too!! I'm wondering how do you take each child and place them around the room for read to self? It sounds like a lot of time to get them organized. I was thinking about placing their book boxes around and then they find them or I go to each place and call out the number and the students goes to that particular place. Any thoughts?

I followed the Dummies

Follow right along with that one. My kindergarten friend did it from Dummies and they did great.
For Read to Self... When we were practicing stamina we talked about places to go and not to go, we also talked about spreading and not being too close to others, so we could practice our reading and not " wasting our precious reading time " when you have all choices going you will only have a small group reading to self anyhow.

Have fun! It is the best thing I have done!

This is the one for dummies, I think it was made by a first grade teacher. I am sure there is another one for the younger set.....

Cafe menu for younger students

On the Daily 5 website you can get Cafe strategies for younger students. I thought this was a great find, as I had questions about the strategies being too advanced for 1st grader...at least at the beginning of the year. There is one for "emergent readers" and one for "transitional readers." It seems the transitional menu will fit well. You may also be able to find this in the peony room here on this site.

It actually doesn't take that long to set them up around the room. All of the students are eager to get started so they wait patiently while I am placing the kids around the room. I only do this for the first few days, and then they have the responsibility of choosing spots for themselves. I find it necessary to place them around the room in the beginning so they can get a feel of all the different spots that are available to them. Otherwise, when it is their turn to choose spots, they all stand up and just wander around while they watch to see what everyone else is doing.

I wouldn't hide their book boxes around the room for them to find. If they think it's a game of some sort, they'll be confused when that eventually stops and they won't know how to do it on their own. It also might rile them up, and then they could have a difficult time getting settled.

placing kids

I don't place kids I give them a choice. We do talk A LOT about where to sit and where not to sit! I have them put their arms out and they should not be close to touching anyone!

I also have circle rugs (like bathroom rugs from IKEA) that I use for students that need a special spot

When we check in at the end of Daily 5 I specifically ask about the spot they chose to read and if it helped them read. We may add to the Read to Self chart if we need to.

Where to sit.

I let my students choose where to sit. We also talk a lot about where to and where not to sit. I tell them that it is their "bubble spot". They must not pop the bubble by moving or getting too close to someone else's bubble.
