This Year's Daily 5 Anchor Charts

I had posted my Daily 5 Anchor Charts for last year HERE, but wanted to give you a quick follow-up with this year's charts.

I don't make them exactly like the book, and you can probably see the differences pretty quickly.

I incorporate one of our school's character assets under each of the options. This gives the kids the chance to think about that asset as they work in that session and I can also draw out some pretty cool character asset compliments during this time, like, "I love how so-and-so is showing so much respect toward our iPod!" during Listen to Reading.

I also don't always put "Teachers are:" on the right-hand side of the charts. We do that for the first chart on Read to Self, but afterwards, I like to use the space to write down choices they have during that time. This helps answer a lot of questions about what they should be working on and gives them huge visual clues in case they forget :)

Without further ado...

    1. Thanks so much :) I am completely addicted to the smelly Mr. Sketch markers, so I try to find any excuse to make big charts with them :) :)

  3. I LOVE how you have choices on the right side! I wrote what the teacher is doing on the right side of ALL of my anchor charts, and what a waste of space! Pretty sure I'm going to be redoing mine tomorrow!

  4. I really like that you write student choices on the right side of your posters! Great idea! It's a better use of space and students will get more out of it as well. Thanks for sharing the idea.

  6. May I ask what your I-Pick system is?
    Im wondering if it is different from a similar one that I have used.

  7. Hi! I will begin using the Daily 5 during the upcoming school year and want to be sure I have it all accurate. Do you do each of the 'read to self', 'listen to reading', etc. on the same days, or do the students have the option to choose what they would like to do on any given day?
    Thank you!
