This smartboard file contains great visuals for introducing the Daily 5 choices at the beginning of the year. It has a slide for building stamina, as well as introduces the rules for selecting a partner for "read to someone" and "checking for understanding. You can use it as you add slowly to your choices at the beginning of the year-staring with 1 and building up to the 5 choices. Each day while students practice the Daily 5 choices I put up the visual on the board to remind them of our rules and the choices of activities. It's a great reminder/visual for them!
