Crafting a Morning Message for "Big Kids" - those who read independently - takes planning.

These cards allow you the flexibility to showcase recently learned literacy skills in context. Morning Message Idea Cards gives you the content, ideas and classroom-tested tips to craft an engaging and informative daily Morning Message. These are true time savers, allow you to build classroom community and demonstrate key skills and concepts in context!
Each card includes:
The Greeting – Creative beginnings designed to build vocabulary
The Body – Main Idea and details on interesting subjects! Personalize your daily Message to target mechanics, grammar and spelling practice in addition to reading and writing strategies. The flexible framework allows you to meet the needs of your unique classroom’s grade and population. Several authentic implementation examples.
The Closing – End on a positive note in a variety of ways
