  • 4. But What Does It Look Like?  Video- Whole Class Independent Work
  • 5.  Trust- meaningful learning requires respec t between the teacher and students as well as among the students themselves. When trust is combined with explicit instruction, our students acquire the skills necessary to become independent learners. When students execute the skills of independence they have been taught, teachers are free to focus their time and energy on instruction.
  • 6.  Choice- The order students choose varies from day to day, depending on their goals, motivation, and mood. Choice is highly motivational and puts children in charge of their learning.  Community- A sense of community provides members with ownership to hold others accountable for behaviours of effort, learning, order, and kindness.  Sense of Urgency- We always teach why we do things. This gives students a responsibility to take ownership for their own teaching and learning.
  • 7.  Stamina- Building stamina works with even our youngest students. You need to teach students to build their stamina for independent work. The Daily five allows for teachers to have instruction time in one-on-one and small group settings because the bulk of the class is independently engaged in worthwhile and meaningful activities.
  • 8.  Developing the concept of “good-fit” books  Creating anchor charts  Short, repeated intervals of independent practice  Calm signals and check-in procedures  Using a model approach for behaviors  Set a gathering place
  • 9. Determine a meeting place where all students can sit, at all grade levels. It provides time for a change in their brain work along with much-needed movement of their bodies. This is called a Brain and Body Break.
  • 10.  It is essential to teach how to choose books that are a good fit. A child’s purpose for reading, interest in a topic, and ability to comprehend play a large role in finding a good-fit book. I PICK- slideshow Video- YouTube
  • 11. A separate book box/bag for each student 5 – 10 books in box/bag Self-selection of books depends on age Book box/bag has assigned spot it is kept Videos: Book Boxes Nuts and Bolts (Organizing Book Boxes Video Series) Differentiating Book Boxes (Organizing Book Boxes Video Series)
  • 12.  Browsing boxes  Their current guided reading book  Library books- they take one home, put on in their box  Public library  Magazine articles  Donations
  • 13. 1. Identify what is to be taught- “Today we are going to…..” 2. Setting Purpose – Tell the students why…. 3. Brainstorm behaviors desired using an “I” chart- What does it look like, sound like, feel like?
  • 14. 4. Model most and least desirable behaviors- Training your muscle memory 5. Place students around the room- Children want to be comfortable. Show them how to choose a good spot. 6. Everyone practice and build stamina (3 minutes). Don‘t set timer, look for body clues.
  • 15. 7. Stay Out of the Way 8. Quiet Signal – Come back to group. Can be used when time is up or when stamina is broken. 9.Group Check In – “How Did You Do?”. This is a time for self reflection and sharing.
