IEJ Elementary - Where learning, litearcy, & leadership SOAR in 2016-17!   
This school year we are focusing on literacy, & we want I. Ellis Johnson to be a school where literacy thrives! As a launch to the school year, each student at IEJ will participate in Daily 5 each day. Good, strong readers are able to tackle any book, answer math word problems with ease, & navigate other content areas such as science & social studies. 

What is Daily 5?
Daily 5 is a structure used to plan & teach English Language Arts at IEJ. Students will engage in completing meaningful literacy tasks throughout rotations including:
  • Read to Self
  • Work on Writing
  • Word Work
  • Listen to Reading
  • Read to Someone 
Check out what Daily 5 looks like in one of our awesome Kindergarten classes this school year:

In order to increase our students' stamina to work independently during Read to Self, during the first few months of school we will continue to focus on "what good readers do" in each of the rotations. Other choices are introduced as the students progress through the Daily 5 process. While the students are completing their literacy tasks, the teacher meets with small groups & conferences with individual students (on literacy skills, writing challenges, to progress monitor, or to implement interventions). 

C.A.F.E. is the meat of Daily 5, & it is an acronym for the four major components of reading including:
  • C = Comprehension
  • A = Accuracy
  • F = Fluency
  • E = Expanding Vocabulary
Students learn & study these CAFE strategies each day & they eventually will become the tools for the children to use to help themselves become better readers & writers!

Parents, guardians, family, & friends we need your help! Reading is a skill that can take your child's life to the next level. Help your child at home by asking them what they are learning in reading each day at school. Plan regular trips to the bookstore or our local library to encourage good reading habits. Also, check out some of the resources below to help you become an advocate for your child's literacy development:​​
