*UPDATED* Bilingual Daily 5 Freebie and my first Monday Made It




Finally I’m going to be a part of the “Monday Made It” brought to you by 4th Grade Frolics! 

I’ve been working on a Daily 5 freebie for all my dual language or bilingual teacher friends.  I find so many great freebies in English, but there isn’t a lot of Daily 5 stuff out there in Spanish.

One of my all time most popular posts is my Anchor Chart post (click here).  There I shared how I manage the Daily 5 in my classroom.  I use a pocket chart and direct students where they are to go.  I know that the Daily 5 is supposed to be about choice, but this worked really well.  My students responded very well to the routine.  So I’ve created some Daily 5 pocket chart cards in Spanish to help you if you manage your Daily 5 this way.

I've also created signs in case you manage the Daily 5 as seen in my previous post (click here).

The freebie has two different Spanish translations of the Daily 5 rotations.  My husband (an Argentine) and I worked on one, and then I saw my friend Krista from The Second Grade Super Kids posted a fun Daily 5 bookmark freebie…so I used her translation as well.  

I've included posters and pocket chart cards that are only visuals – no words, in case you want to keep it simple or want to do your own translation.

Here you go.  Please let me know if you need these translated differently, or a different look – I’ll try my best to help out!  

These can also be downloaded at my TpT store -  http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Daily-5-Posters-and-Pocket-Chart-Set-Bilingual

Crafts aren’t usually my area of strength – but I’ve also finally finished up my teacher tool box!  I painted it Key Lime – using Rust-Oleum spray paint.  I painted my future math work stations shelf the same color.  Key Lime was calling to me this summer!  

I chose some scrapbook paper that I really liked, but in the end it just didn’t work.  It was hard to read the labels and just kind of uninspired.  See below:


Then I bought some BRIGHT NEON scrapbook paper that I think works much better! 

Here you can also see the future home of math work stations...it started as a beat up shelf that we had as kids and has sat unused for years in my parents' basement...aren't parent basements great!?!

Then it was key-lime-ified!
Now, it's burried under the mess of my future math work stations that are rather discombobulated at the moment...it'll get there, don't worry and I'll have a brilliant photo to share worthy of Pinterest!

P.S. – my mom bought me a Silhouette Cameo – it’s on it’s way now – I think I’ll be walking my parents’ dog for the rest of my life to pay it off – but it’s worth it!

  3. Your Daily Five cards are the cutest things I have ever seen in my whole life. I am so using them..... the non word ones obvi. My Spanish speakers would make fun of me for the rest of my life if I tried using the Spanish ones! Apparently my accent is pretty bad.

    Also I love all your key lime!

    Marvelous Multiagers!

    1. Fushia sounds fun! I like bright colors this year! Good luck!

  8. Your first Monday Made is awesome! I love this teacher tool box, and I agree that the neon colors are so much better! How awesome is it that your shelving unit fits right into the corner of your room and around your whiteboard? Talk about meant to be! You are one lucky girl to be getting a Cameo! I've been wanting one for a while, but I spent sooo much on my Cricut that I feel a bit guilty getting another machine...for now that is ;)

    1. I am lucky! Cricut looks like it can do cool things, I just didn't want to have to pay so much for each kit. I'm cheap - no way around it! ;)

  9. WOW! I didn't know what a Cameo was and know I want one!
    Those neon colors look much clearer and the shelves... Menuda pasada!
    I am re-reading daily five this Summer... I will try next year!

    1. The Cameo is amazing! It's saved me so much time...but also taken so much time, because now I do all sorts of things I wouldn't have considered before!

  10. Awesome awesome math stations shelf!! Love how it turned out. And I definitely like the second teacher toolbox with the bright colors better. I'm the same with things... if I don't like how it turned out... I redo it! :)

    1. Sometimes it's worth going back and redoing things - I probably wouldn't have if I hadn't been determined to share it on my blog...blogs so much work! ;)

  11. Thanks for sharing. I especially appreciate the blank posters--not everyone thinks of that and I hate spoiling a super cute poster by crossing out words with Sharpies! In my kinder we say, "Leer solitos" and "Leer juntos." I really like version two of your teacher tools. Way to suck it up and re-do it, it will be worth it in the long run!

    1. Thank you! I appreciate the meaningful feedback! I try to make my creations as useful as possible, and I'm glad these will help you in your classroom! I like leer solitos, that sounds perfect for the little guys!

  12. Thanks so much for these posters - they're great! I'm wondering what you call the Daily 5 in Spanish. I'm planning to start it this year, and I don't know what's the best way to translate it!

  13. Hi I am a first year DLI teacher and I appreciate the Bilingual Daily 5 freebies. Thank you so much! I also made a teacher toolbox after looking at your site and I love it! Thanks for the great ideas. I was wondering if you had a Daily 5 printable for 'Meet with Teacher' available? Let me know if you can and thanks again!
