router and switches

I have Verizon FiOS and I also have a VoIP telephone. This leaves me three ports open on the router and I have need for more. I bought a couple of 8-port switches and I'm wondering if I should connect each switch to the router or if I should daisy-chain the switches and then to the router.

I would connect each switch to the router rather than daisy-chaining.

Thanks, Rick, that's what I figured was the best way.
