Hi friends, this post is for those who would like to see what the first few days of the Daily 5 look like in my kindergarten classroom. This year will be my 4th year using the Daily 5! What can I say - I love it! I feel it has made a HUGE difference in the way I teach and manage my classroom. I have less behavior problems and students reading and writing like I have never seen before!
Here is a document that you can use if you would like..the first 5 days of the Daily 5 in my K class. Please leave a comment if you would like more clarification. Click on the picture to download your own copy.

I take pictures of "good spots" for students to sit in around the room. Then I make a poster of all the spots and rotate my students clips around the poster so each of the students have a chance to sit in all the different spots. Once we have them all down I do allow them to choose a spot but I don't tell them about that - shhhh! Here are the books I use but you definitely can use other ones.
The other item I use are chimes. My kinder kiddos get use to what that sound means and they freeze and listen to directions. When my students first start I pick out 5 books for them and put them in their book boxes. Each book box has a picture of them on it.You can see in the picture below. That helps with easy transitions. I help them pick out their books for awhile.
