This December morning work product will save your mornings, your sanity, your time--you name it! Mess-less, stress-less, and (almost) paperless! A month's worth of morning journal prompts will engage your students, make them think creatively, and have fun! Also—each prompt has the option to play classical music to calm your students
as they focus and write!
Prompts are organized to cut down on teacher direction-giving time
during the busy morning time. The electronic nature of the prompts creates a COPY-FREE
product for teachers! Students simply respond to prompts daily in their morning journals (spiral notebooks).

Prompts follow this schedule:
•Make It Monday
(Varies between: 'Draw a picture & write a sentence about it', 'Draw a picture and label it', or 'Make a list').
•True Life Tuesday
(Write facts about ______)
•Would You Rather? Wednesday
(Would you rather _______ or _______? Why?)
(Questions that make students think deeply: Why do you think..., How do..., How long would it take...etc.)
•Free Write Friday
(Write about anything you want!)
Each week also has a different theme:
•Fun in the Snow
•This format is predictable
for students, which makes expectations clear and consistent
and lowers the amount of time spent asking and answering questions about directions each day.
*The BEST part?!
•Each prompt also includes an example answer set-up
so students can clearly see the format expected.*
*One more thing!
•Each prompt also includes a classical music song that can play while the students work. This creates a calm atmosphere to start your mornings off smoothly!
•There are 5 prompts for each of the 4 weeks (20 prompts total). These prompts are seasonal and meant to be used during the month they were made for. If there are certain weeks you are unable to use because they don’t apply to your students, you can purchase bonus prompts here
to use instead. Or, you can purchase an entire year of prompts HERE
