OK so I do daily 5. This is my second year. I got two more folks at my school on board...now we're being told that our county office reading folks do not agree with daily 5. I go to a meeting tomorrow afternoon where I'm sure they will bring it up. Give me some things to say to help me fight to keep using d5 as my structure. TiA!

Daily 5

It's AUTHENTIC reading! The actual time the student reads is SO much more than round robin reading or any other whole group structure. Books are chosen that they are interested in and they are able to comprehend. There's much more rigor and structure with the Daily 5.

It's balanced literacy -
It's real world reading -
It's rigor and relevance - based on the level of skills you demand.

It's a structure NOT a program. Whatever the county "wants" you to teach, it CAN be done through the structure of Daily 5. What do they not agree with? kids reading?, kids using strategies to read and write and KNOWING what strategies that they are using? that they are actively engaged in their own learning? you have time to assess and conference with your kids? These people need to get out of the offices and into the classrooms!

It's Research Based

Brain research shows the child's age = approx. number of minutes their brain can focus during direct instruction
Hence the short bursts of focus lessons/movement sustained indep. activity while you work with small groups or individuals
go to the sisters website to see if you can find more examples of the research behind their approach. I think another is the 80/20 rule. Research shows that children need to be practicing 80% & having instruction 20% but w/traditional classroom structure it is exactly the opposite. D5 Allows for them to practice 80% & listen to instruction 20% of the time. There is more to support D5 - but that's a start

I had to convince my reading coach and P that it didn't change ANY PART of the curriculum. Its just a MANAGEMENT TOOL! Once they understood that, they were accepting of the program. I think that "higher ups" that don't understand it think its an intervention/additional program (like Fundations, or Quick Reads...)
