Who has those early morning students wanting to hang out before class starts? I do, I do! What can you do with them?
Start a morning breakfast club in which students come in and have a task to do/complete. You can start with giving students a list of things to do such as complete incomplete work, read, write, etc. Or you may simply want students to come in and rest. What ever it is, have students ready to learn right away with Morning Breakfast Club.
