Quick Setup Station: Leveled Daily Work

One of my favorite parts of the Leveled Daily Work is that is sets up a complete station of the classroom in one quick setup. You can print the daily work sheets or post them on a smartboard or iPad and photocopy the student response pages and you are done. Having the different levels allows for differentiation. I think this works really well as a paraprofessional run station. I also like using it as an independent station and have students check and review the pages during group work or teacher time.

The structure stays the same and content changes.

Although there are 4 different levels that include a completely different set of skills and concepts, there is one arching theme that stays the same. Within each resource, the structure stays the same and the content changes. The layout, activities, and process goes in the same order with the prompts in the same spots. But there is different content each day. I think this helps students learn the setup more quickly, complete the activities independently more easily, and focus on learning the new material.

A little something for everyone…

Each Leveled Daily Work set has 180 daily work pages, so there is one page a day for the whole year. Assign the a student job to switch out the page each day. Level 1 focuses on basic skills like copying words, counting, identifying colors, and copying a picture. I love the repetition of this set. It’s perfect for students with emerging writing skills. Level 2 works on basic questions, foundational phonics, counting, wh- questions, writing a complete sentence, and vocabulary building. This level is SO fun. I love seeing the progression throughout the year. Level 3 adds a social/emotional component and incorporates some problem solving along with more advanced math, grammar, editing, and writing a paragraph. Level 4 is the newest level and targets inferencing, advanced language concepts, emotions, vocabulary, word problems, story elements, and more complex math.

Photocopy and go.

The student response pages are the same each day. Photocopy a whole big stack and be prepped for the next few weeks. I like to put them in student binders and have a tab specifically for these pages.

You can display the daily work page on the iPad, printed, or on a smart board. This setup is so smooth, is planned for the whole year, and provides so much valuable learning and generalization each day!

  5. Hello Sasha,
    I am in my first year of teaching in a self-contained classroom. I have learned so much from all you have to offer. Would it be possible to get a worksheet from each level of daily work so I can see which one (or more than one) fits my students?

  6. Hello Sasha,
    I have multiple levels in my room and would love to see what would work for us. Is there a way I could print one page from each level to see which one would work for the student? I love all of your Materials!!

  7. I would also love to see a page from each level. I am working with students in grades 5-8 on Alabama’s extended standards. I have some students on kindergarden reading level up to 3rd grade.

  10. I am in my third year in a special education program and am still learning! When you refer to level, is that grade level or the level of the individual student?

  11. Hi Sasha!

    I found this blog super helpful and strategic, I’m going to be an educator here in the next two years and one of my biggest questions is how to level curriculum everyday. This is a great idea! Do you have any ideas how this would work in the SPED classroom? A part of me thinks that it would be hard because students need individualized strength based work.

  12. Hi Anna! Great question! I didn’t assigned any grades for each level bc I want to give flexibility to use levels for older students who may still need to work on foundational level skills. It’s roughy Level 1 – preschool, Level 2 – 1st/2nd Level 3 – 2nd/3rd. Here is a skill matrix for skills needed for each level: https://theautismhelper.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/TAH-Curriculum-Levels-Matrix.pdf

  13. I love that you are assigning a role to the student, this keeps them accountable for their own learning. You are also scaffolding their learning to help get them ready for each level. The visuals are also really helpful, each student learns differently so it is important to adjust our lessons and materials so that they are geared towards the students’ success. This idea is great, thank you for sharing.
