Daily five alive!

Moser, Joan
It's a common dilemma: teachers need time to work in one-on-one conferences and in small groups with students during literacy workshop. And yet assigning 'busy work' to the rest of the class won't help all students to develop the essential reading and writing skills they need. Can we really expect young readers and writers to tackle challenging work on their own without constant support and intervention from teachers? This question led Gail Boushey and Joan Moser ('the Sisters') to develop The daily five, a structured set of literacy tasks that research shows are linked to literacy achievement. The five tasks are outlined in detail in Gail and Joan's book The daily five. This video, shot in Joan's K-2 multi-age classroom, focuses on launching three of the 'Dailies': read to self, read to someone and work on writing. About the author: Gail Boushey and her sister Joan Moser grew up in a small town and farming community with four other siblings. "The sisters," as they are known, continue their magical teaching today, consulting across the nation, and presenting at NCTE, IRA, and state reading conferences. Gail is a literacy coach and Joan is a K-2 multi-age teacher.
