Morning work! In the past it's been a mad dash for me to find something for my kids to do as we wait for the day to begin. Not anymore! I am organized, themed, and ready to go! This is one of my favorite and most time-saving units. Our school runs in trimesters, and this unit of morning work lasts me almost one whole trimester. It's enough to get me to November, when I will start to use holiday themed morning work. It is based on the following schedule of days:
*Magazine Monday- cutting and pasting words from a magazine
*Tune-Up Tuesday-math reviews
*Word Search Wednesday- word searches
*Think Outside the Box Thursday- what can your students see and create from a basic shape
*Fidget with it Friday- drawing and sentence writing based on what the students create with legos, clay, wikki stix, etc.
I have posters to match each day that are also posted for free in my store. The preview is a one week freebie for you, as well!
This unit was inspired by First Grade Wow and created by Ann Sielaff 2013.
