Through this proven structure, teachers experience for themselves the power of students gaining independence and monitoring their own behaviors. Join Gail and Joan as they work with third- and fifth-grade teachers in two diverse Midwest classrooms where the Daily 5 has been in place for several years. As the popularity of the Daily 5 has grown, more and more students have developed experience with it; teachers now have to decide how best to build upon students' familiarity with the Daily 5 structure while addressing new content and learning objectives.

This video emphasizes the importance of starting the 10 Steps to Independence at the beginning of each year, highlights the 2 Sisters' newest thinking and learning, differentiates the Daily 5 tasks and structure, models support strategies with at-risk students, demonstrates brain-compatible lessons, and introduces and builds the link to Math Daily 3. Whether you are new to the Daily 5 or have been using it for many years, this video will be an invaluable accompaniment to your practice.

They are the authors of The Daily 5, Second Edition; The CAFE Book; many videos; and their professional development website,
