In my school, Do Nows are required.
This tracker is used for 5 days of the week. Students keep their trackers, beginning on Monday.
Students write the daily Objective (written on the board) and answer the daily prompt (in Spanish, on Powerpoint on the board). As the timer is running, I walk around and stamp students who have accurately finished the Do Now.
Students turn in completed Do Now for a weekly Participation grade.
