If you're like me... you LOVE morning work but HATE making copies!!! Here's how I do morning work. I finally organized it and I'll be adding one for every quarter of school. This file has 45 days worth of morning work!!!
My students have a Morning Work notebook. They can usually get 2 days on one page. This morning work has 4 components every day...
Number of the Day
Word of the Day
Word Problem/Critical Thinking Question
I have my students work on this while I'm getting my day organized and people are handing me things. After everyone has been working for about 10/15 minutes, (depending on how our morning starts), we go over it all together.
Some of the word-of-the-day words don't show up in our student dictionaries. I let my students use dictionary.com on our classroom computers and tablets if they need to for that.
This is a great way to get our brains moving in the mornings! My kids really enjoy it! I also give stickers to kids that try to work the word-of-the-day into conversation. I didn't think 4th graders would be so excited about stickers --- but they are. :)
If you like this, PLEASE rate it. My ratings are important to me. If there is a problem or you don't like something --- please let me know and give me a chance to make you happy.
