Daily 5: Building Stamina

Anyone who uses Daily 5 knows what stamina is all about...before you can expect your kids to sit quietly and work through a round of Daily 5 so you can teach a small group uninterrupted, there must be some guided practice! The kids must practice doing exactly what is expected of them before you can expect them to do it on their own. That's where stamina charts come in...

When building stamina, you should keep a visual of the time so that students are able to see their progress toward the goal. You can do this many different ways. I will be printing off some charts on colored paper, laminating them and then posting them on my white (gray) board. We will color in our minutes each day until we reach our goal:

I decided to add a few more charts with a different goal so that I could share them with you all! I know we all do Daily 5 differently, timing included. If you would like to snag a copy of these posters, head over to one of my stores!
