Daily 5 Organization...Plus a Freebie

Daily 5 Organization
I have been trying to figure out how to make an easy template for my students to keep track of their Daily 5 choices. This is what I came up with. I have each day color coded right now for my students to easily differentiate each day. The numbers in each box represent each round of literacy stations. My students will just circle which station they do for each round. I have it this way because I hope to have my students choose their stations as part of morning work (while they are turning in homework, eating breakfast, choosing new take home books) to save time.  The only thing all my students must do each day is Read to Self, and they must do one reading response each week. 

Uh Oh
The only thing I am a little nervous about is allowing my students to choose all of their stations all of the time. I am a bit of a control freak...I can't help it...and I keep thinking what happens if 8 people choose RAZ-kids at the same time even though we only have 4 computers??? I can just see chaos now! Furthermore, I was thinking of assigning quarterly "reading buddies" for read to someone in order to PRC2 effectively (see a previous post). Does anyone have any good ideas about how to manage letting the kiddos choose their stations?

Storage 
I plan to use 2 pocket folders with three prongs in the middle for my students' reading folders. I will include this template (enough for the quarter) as well as paper for reading responses (divided by a tab for organization) in the three prongs. The two pockets will be used for mini-lesson handouts as well as guided reading assignment sheets/assignments. 


If you want a copy...download here!

I can never figure out google docs. If it doesn't work for you, let me know. I'd be happy to email it to you!

I couldn't get your response sheet to download from Google docs. Could you email it me? My team has been looking for something like this!

I am new to 2nd grade this year and I am implementing Daily 5 and I think this would be helpful to organize. I would love a copy! Google Docs says that it is not available.

Thanks for sharing!

No problem! What's your email address? I'm so sorry - I don't know what my problem is with google docs. Do you have any suggestions for me? I saved this document as a powerpoint and as a jpeg...I uploaded the powerpoint into google docs (I even copied and pasted the url and it worked) but for some reason when I put try to upload it into my post as an image the url isn't recognized. I'm a little technologically challenged!!

I love this! Could you send it to me? -(especially as an editable doc because we use a different computer program, although the kids loved RAZ last year-no funding!)

Thanks!
