Daily Five and CAFE Focused Lesson Structure

This year our school is pushing the primary daily five and CAFE mini-lesson structure during our ELA block. We are planning to follow the 3 rounds of daily five format. 

Primary Structure of Daily Five and CAFE Block

7-10 minute focused mini-lesson (focus on a strategy from the comprehension part of the CAFE menu)
Round 1 daily five (15-20 minutes for kinder, 20-30 minutes for first grade)

7-10 minute focused mini-lesson (focus on a strategy from the accuracy part of the CAFE menu)
Round 2 daily five (15-20 minutes for kinder, 20-30 minutes for first grade)

7-10 minute focused mini-lesson (focus on a strategy from the fluency or vocabulary part of the CAFE menu)
Round 3 of daily five (15-20 minutes for kinder, 20-30 minutes for first grade)

Share Time (a few students share out)
