I absolutely love using Daily 5 and the CAFE board in my classroom, but my first graders were having trouble staying focused on their reading strategies independently. I created these reference cards to help my students be more aware of what they need to work on during centers.
There is one card for each of the CAFE board components- Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, and Expand Vocabulary. Each card has examples of several strategies students can use to focus on their assigned component. So as not to overwhelm them, I did not use every possible CAFE strategy for each section- only the most relevant ones for my first graders.
There is also additional information on each card to help students be successful and independent- story elements for Comprehension, common vowel and digraph sound charts for Accuracy, tips for reading with expression for Fluency, and prefix and suffix charts for Expand Vocabulary.
The cards can be folded in half lengthwise to make a 2-sided large "bookmark" or left as a full sheet.
