A few months ago we were exhibiting at IRA in Orlando.
A teacher asked me, "Does CTP have anything for CAFE?"
It first I thought...cheeseburgers and French fries,
but then I realized that was not the CAFE that she meant.
The answer to her question is "Yes" and "No".
The Daily CAFE and the Daily 5 were conceived by
two real life sisters, Gail Boushey and Joan Moser.
Visit their website http://www.the2sisters.com/
for more information.
According to the website The Daily CAFE and The Daily 5
provide a structure for fostering literacy independence
in the elementary grades.
CAFE is an acronym for
Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, and Expanding Vocabulary
I have been visiting classrooms for the last week or so.
(I love this time of year...everyone getting ready!)
I have noticed CAFE and Daily 5 in dozens of classrooms.
The ideas for the implementation of
The Daily CAFE and The Daily 5 are copyrighted.
You will have to go to the sisters' website for specific details.
However, lots of teachers are using CTP products to display
the terms CAFE and Daily 5
and to track the students as they work through the processes.
