The Daily 5 is really more of a classroom management program- "What do
the other kids do while you are working with groups?".  The CAFE book
is more of an assessment structure.

Right now we have teachers trying both, and to establish a common language, assessments and routines, we need to select one. Already, one teacher has asked the differences are between the two. I can name some, but since I've never taught Daily 5 / CAFE, I cannot speak to it from a teaching perspective.
