Need morning work for your students that is consistent, covers a variety of subject areas, builds on itself, and keeps your students busy? I did too but I couldn't find it anywhere! I decided to make my own. :)
Included is four weeks worth of morning work for each month. Each week includes four days of morning work. On Fridays, I pass out something "fun" for the class to do as their morning work. Usually, it is a color by number, cut & paste activity, or word search. Since I originally made this for my class's personal use, the 4 day week is reflected here.
Tips on how to get this up and running in your classroom.
January- 16 sheets (4 weeks, 4 days per week)
February- 16 sheets
March- 16 sheets
April- 16 sheets
May- 16 sheets
80 sheets total
Each day, your students will have the opportunity to...
1) Write a morning message which is dictated by you (great chance for letter, sight word practice- more tips on how to use this in the pack).
2) Count and write numbers. They will also work regularly with dot arrangements (reinforcing addition facts even when you're not doing them yet), five frames, ten frames, missing numbers, and number trains. In April, sums to 5 is introduced.
3) Color a simple picture.
-That the language portion of the morning work is 100% customizable. You write the morning message on the board and they write it in the space provided.
-The work is consistent. Once your students get the hang of it they'll know what to do and you can take care of morning duties.
-The math portion correlates with the common core.
-The work builds on itself and slowly increases in difficulty throughout the year. However, it is kept on your kindergartner's independent level so that they can complete it without your help. I know you are busy in the morning! :)
Unfortunately, my morning work packs are not. This is due to the clip art agreement for the clip art I used. The clip art artists do not like their work to be included in editable files because then people can just right click and have access to their clip art. They have to be "nailed down" in PDF format. I am sorry! :(
Is this editable? If not, can I get this as editable? I love the idea but may want to tweak it for my curriculum.

I am so sorry...somehow I missed that it is a zip file and I am unable to open it. Can you send it in another format or please refund my money! I love the idea and wish I could use it. I have and use the first one regularly and wish to open the second one. Would it be possible to e-mail it to me?
I am so sorry that you are having trouble with the file. I cannot email that file (I've tried in the past for other buyers) because it is VERY large and my server will not allow attachments over a certain size.
One thing to try would be to download Winzip, which is a free programs that will allow you to open the zipped file once it is installed. You can get it here:
If you still cannot open it, you will have to contact the TPT Tech guys. Sellers cannot process refunds. For a more detailed description of the refund process, click the "Help" link at the very top right hand side of your page.

I would like to buy both packs. Do you have a special for bundles?
Hi! After paying, Teachers Pay Teachers should give you the option to download. An orange button that says "Download Now". Did you click anything like that? What happened after you paid? If we can't figure it out tonight, I can email it to you first thing in the morning. My jump drive is at school but as soon as I get there, I can send it to you.
I would also like to include a freebie for your trouble. Would you rather have a frog or butterfly unit pack?
Let me know if you still can't download, and please reply with your email even if you got it so I can mail you a freebie!
