The Daily Five and Café are part of a literacy model developed by Gail Boushey and Joan Moser.
Along the bottom of the Daily Five board are self adhesive library sign out envelopes. They are labeled with each child's name on a card and popsicle stick. Students choose a station by putting their stick in the appropriate pocket (max. 5 sticks per pocket). If I need to meet with a student or group I move their sticks before they arrive in the morning.

Daily Five tracking strips for students (printable)
- cut into strips, students place in their envelope for the week, few days, colour each task as it is completed
- teacher can see at a glance where students are at even if they were absent
- for tracking over 12 weeks, students keep this in a folder or glued to the inside cover of their journal to track where they have worked
HERE IS HOW I USE THIS PARTICULAR CHART FOR OLDER STUDENTS

You'll notice that some students wanted a 'loupe des sons' in their pocket as well.
