Daily 5, Freebie, Amazing Giveaway!


Bloggers....it's cold outside....here is a little something to warm you up! 

This Daily 5 Freebie was created to help assist students and teachers implementing the Daily 5 routine into their classrooms. 
    


Using these folders in your classroom is easy!

  • The students will carry their Daily 5 folders with them from round to round. 
  • After the round is finished, the students will quickly clean up and place their work in the appropriate spot in their folder (unfinished or finished work). 
  • The student will add a sticker to the round he/she was just working at on their “Daily 5 Check Chart” sheet and move onto their next round. 
  • At times the teacher can leave positive comments on the students’ check sheet to reward their learning.

How Do I set up Daily 5 in my Classroom!?!
Read to Self

Here is our Reading Corner!!!
The students "Book Buckets" filled with sight word and leveled readers at his/her level!

"Poetry Binders" with all the poems we learn through out the year



After we read our Let's Find Out magazine I will keep two in our reading corner for enjoyment! 


Work on Writing



 I have been using Deedee's "Writing Work Stations" and just love them! What I like the most about them is that they are the same activities each month, but with different themed vocabulary cards.  Now my students will know what to do, they will know my expectations, and they will be able to complete this center independently all year long!

Read with Partners

 
The first bin holds reading tools, bins 2 - 5 hold leveled books (2 of each), and the last bin holds any little paper readers we have read in the classroom and have sent home. 




Work on Words

I made a set of the themed vocabulary cards for each of the bins in my Work on Words center.  I added a different colored sticker to the back of each set....so they don't get mixed up!

We use Live, Love, Laugh in Kindergarten's Word Work Unit.  See examples below...





I have been using Tammy's "Word Work Stations" and just love them, too! What I like the most about them is that they are the same activities each month, but with different themed vocabulary cards.  Now my students will know what to do, they will know my expectations, and they will be able to complete this center independently all year long!  I know...I repeated myself...but it is true and it works!!!
