Now, that you have books to read and a place to put the books, your kids are actually reading…and they break stamina. After students have broken stamina, it’s time to play a quiet signal. I use a traditional teacher’s bell and ring it 2-3 times. As soon as it is rung, students quickly grab their book bin, put their bin on their desk, and sit on the carpet (SILENTLY)! The Sisters recommend chimes or a magic wand, but the teacher bell works for me. 🙂
The Sisters also talk about barometer students in this chapter and tools we can provide to help keep them on track. Barometer students are the students who break stamina first and the ones who we have to check-in with more often. I’ve found that for students who break stamina because of constant book-changing, a sand timer is a great tool for when to change books. I’ll also provide Sight Word Rings for book bins, so these friends can have a change of pace.

Love that you are offering a give away to help teachers get started with Daily 5. I have read the book (awhile ago) and like the ideas and format. I am hoping to incorporate it into my 2nd grade classroom this year. Thank you for a great blog!
I, too, am wanting to give D5 a try. I'm giving myself a year to gather the books though. Where did you get your level bin labels – so fun, clear, and bright! If you made them, are available? Perhaps with other things?

Did you make your guided reading level/lexile level signs yourself or are they from TPT? Thanks.
I, too, thank-you for your explicit and honest details about Daily 5! I am wondering, also, about the labels your used for the Reading A-Z levels. Do you have these available somewhere else? LOVE your blog! I feel empowered to begin!
Stranger Things Steve Harrington Jacket says
“After enjoying the fourth season of the well-known internet television show Stranger Things, I noticed Steve Harrington was donning a Stranger Things Steve Harrington Jacket. The styling of these coats is really unique and attractive. As I spotted Jacket on jacket-hub, I was debating buying one and I put my order for the best deal.
