I had a number of email requests for my Daily 5 Check-In PowerPoint. I am always happy to share! But, I did need to remove the graphics in order to share legally. Still cute though…right? Click on the image to download.
Just add pics of your students to the table at the bottom on each slide. I was inserting pics and resizing them to 1/2 inch. Save the file with all of the pictures in place at the bottom. Then to use during D5, just drag and drop each child’s picture to their selected activity. There is a separate slide for each round. As long as you do not save the file when you close it, then all of the pictures will revert to their starting spot at the bottom…ready to go for the next day. As you read in my original post, this was my solution to wanting an visual/interactive check-in process to use with my new projector and pull-down screen. Someday I will have a Smartboard…but for now this was as interactive as I could get! =)
The titles of each activity are editable, so you may tailor them to meet your needs. I do not generally use “Read to Someone” in my classroom, so I published this with “Reading Meeting” instead…which is what we call our small group time.
The font used is “Cheri” and is freely downloadable if you do not already have it. The Google Docs version will download with Arial…just switch it up to what you like. And of course, you can always add your own graphics back in to cutesy it up.
I hope some of you can use this. If you have any questions, just ask! I’d love to know how it works for you!
Thank you for reading!
