Join Joan Moser of “The Sisters” for a visit to her lively kindergarten classroom. You’ll see Joan in action as she teaches whole-class lessons, leads small groups, and confers with students during rounds of Daily 5 in literacy. The video also includes one round of Daily 5 in math, as well as a peek at how the CAFÉ assessment system is integrated into the daily literacy block. Bonus tracks include an extended classroom tour, explanations of book boxes, and a guide to the “pensieve” — the notebook housing recordkeeping forms and conferring notes.
Joan Moser is an experienced kindergarten teacher, author, and workshop leader. She is one of “The Sisters,” working with Gail Boushey over the past two decades to develop the Daily 5 and CAFÉ Assessment programs. Together they host The Daily CAFÉ (www.thedailycafe.com), a popular professional development website visited by thousands of teachers weekly.
