I used these mats with my first grade class! I created them to be used as as morning warm up in addition to calendar time. The math page focuses on a number of the day and asks students to draw the number, write it in words, give the place value, show it on a hundred chart, and more! I wanted to do something similar for ELAR so I created a word of the day page that builds vocabulary, letter sounds, and writing. These can be used as part of a morning routine.
I printed these on colored paper (b&w), laminated them, and reused them every morning with marker! I worked through these with my students at first to establish a routine, then they became independent warmups. I reviewed the answers with all students to begin class.
I hope these can be a helpful part of your morning, too! :)
