I have always wanted a morning daily work resource that would combine a small amount of practice in several subjects and skill areas on one page that I could project or reproduce for the students. Well, I finally created my own!
These are the second 20 lessons, with a year’s worth to follow (in 20 lesson increments). I am already finished through Day 80. I hope you will like them as much as I like them!
I have used a large, easy-to-read font that shows up well when projected on a white board. I have the students complete the written work on a piece of notebook paper. I ask for three volunteers to share their journals aloud.
For the idiom section, I either do a fast share-around the classroom. (The students really love this!) If I am short on time, I will draw name cards to ask 5 students to share.
I make the Science section a short discussion time, either whole class, in small groups, or a combination.
For the Geography section, I have wall maps available for two students at a time to quietly come and look at. They may also use the maps in the back of their social studies books. I use an incentive system to correct this exercise. I draw a name card. If that student can point out the location correctly on the map, they receive a small reward.
After we have corrected the written exercises together, and done our sharing, I draw five name cards and collect those papers to check their work and read their journals.
I have included an answer key to make your life easier, and to help substitutes.
