Includes 25 different morning messages for the month of JUNE. Each morning message is completely editable. Each day of the week has a theme like Marvelous Monday, Throwback Thursday, etc…. Either print each out or project via whiteboard each day before the students enter the classroom. I always use these messages as their morning journal prompts. I provide each student with a composition or spiral notebook at the beginning of the year (paste or mod podge the journal cover on front of the notebook at the beginning of each year)
Students read the morning message and answer the question on each message in a complete sentence. For example: If the question is:
“What are some things that make you so marvelous?”
Students should label their paper Memorable Monday and then answer in a complete sentence like:
“Some things that make me marvelous are that I am kind, cooperative, and responsible.”
After they finish each writing prompt…students should draw a line under their sentence and start tomorrow’s prompt under each day’s line.
Following every morning message and journal prompt is a fun brain teaser for students to try to figure out….no big deal if they can’t figure it out…but they have fun trying. The answers to the brain teasers are also found at the end of the morning message prompts.
Following their morning journal prompt theirr is a quick greeting for students to greet each other each morning, a sharing prompt, and a quick activity. MY students look forward to morning meeting EVERY jmorning so don't ever think of skipping it or you will have some angry students :-)
