In my first grade classroom, Daily 5 is part of our daily routine. And to keep myself organized, I use these check off worksheets myself and with my students. I use the check list to write the students name and cross off the choices that they make throughout the week (each day we all do Read to Self together and then they make 1 choice per day). Included in this 14 page bundle are:
-A Daily 5 Choices check-off list for the teacher (with the 5 original choices listed)
-A student check off sheet with the 5 choices listed.
-A "snap-shot" to send home or discuss with students about their Daily 5 strengths and goals.
-A student reflection rubric on their Daily 5 daily behavior (you can set point goals each day for your students to reach)
-A read to self reflection rubric
-A read to someone reflection rubric
-A word work reflection rubric
-A listen to reading reflection rubric
-A work on writing reflection rubric
-A Daily 5 folder cover
-Choice cards (cut out and laminate a set for each student to put in their Daily 5 folder. As students make their choices, they give you a card. It's a good way to organize if you want to have them responsible for keeping track of their own choices)
You can use any of these organizers to help you keep track or your students keep track of their choices. The rubrics are designed with a first grader in mind, but could be adapted and used in higher or lower graders.
Teacher tip: When I have squirmy students who find Daily 5 a challenging time to focus, I give them point goals (say for example, they need to reach 8 points per day). Then using the points rubric, they reflect on how they did after Daily 5. If they continually meet their goal, they win small class rewards (like getting to take their shoes off all day, switching seats with a friend, or reading a book to the class). These small incentives help motivate and focus them!
