During the class' Daily 5 reading program, students are encouraged to choose from reading to themselves, reading to someone else, work on writing, work on words or listen as others read or someone reads on a computer. And they're encouraged to do it while spreading out in classroom.

"We use Daily 5 as a way to structure reading in the class," explained first grade teacher Amy Reichert.
