The Daily 5

For those of you very patient teachers out there that have been waiting so long for me to create a Daily 5 template here it is. 

Disclaimer: I have never used the D5 nor have I read the book. I got input from some wonderful individuals who use the D5. So if this template doesn't look like what you are used to let me know. I can make a 2nd or even 3rd D5 template.

Without further ado...
Dru's Daily 5
A 2 page template that is meant to sit side by side. This template starts with a column for your daily notes. In my signature style, the days are color coded for easy distinction. You have a comprehension, reading, word work, writing column. In between these sections you have your student independent work. The font I used for this template is called CK Handprint.
(Click on the images to make them larger.)
 

I did not add Guided Reading to this template because it wouldn't fit, but you could always use it in conjunction with the Easy Guided Reading template. HOWEVER, the lovely lady that helped me create this template made a wonderful Daily 5 Check In sheet, that I am attaching to this template with your purchase.


On a side note: I hate to be a stickler, but if you have me edit a template it is considered a "custom template". Even thought a pre-made template is already created, it is still time consuming to edit a template to a specific teacher schedule/ preference. Just something to keep in mind. However, if you want to customize it but don't want to purchase a custom template, you can always edit the template on your own once you get the Word version.

As always any feedback is appreciated!

I'm back!

Oh my word! I can't believe I have been gone for so long. I am back and am happy to open up my custom lesson plan template order shop.

However, I do want to note that I am already working on 2 custom orders so it might take me several days to get to yours. Currently I am only able to work on the custom templates during the weekends.

In some exciting news... 
I will be posting a Daily 5 pre-made template sometime this week, hopefully tomorrow, so keep your eyes open for that. I hope you all are doing well and I hope to hear from you soon.


I appreciate any support or feedback you can give me. Have a great day.
