Audience: 3rd - 5th Grade Teachers

Presenter(s): Erika Jorgensen and Kristie Reimers

Length: 80 minutes

Level: Intermediate Procedural

Session Description:

How do The Daily 5 and CAFE work together? This session will begin with an overview of The Daily 5 as a component of the reading workshop and how explicit modeling ensures student independence. Participants will learn which foundational skills are necessary for students to be successful, as well as how to teach them. The CAFE portion will focus on how to use student data to guide the implementation of whole group, small group, and individual conferences. By using the CAFE Menu that is aligned to the Common Core State Standards, teachers will be able to guide students in the process of creating their own learning goals and developing ownership of their learning.
