You know how it is when your kiddos come into your class in the morning--there are about 50 things that you're trying to take care of, your kids want to know what they need to do, and you have things that you want to remind them about, but it tends to be chaotic!
I've been using this PowerPoint with my kids in the morning. As they enter the classroom, I have it displayed on my Promethean Board. The night before, I set it up with all of the info they need for the day--morning work assignments, schedule announcements, reminders, and other odds and ends.
Each "announcement" is written in a bright color and a fun font to grab students' interest. Animations keep students engaged in the announcements as they cycle through. Oh, and the best part--the whole slideshow is time and set to loop, so all you have to do is drop in your announcements and start the slideshow; it automatically moves through your slides and starts over each time it reaches the last slide. This lets you start the slideshow and take care of other things while your students get the info they need to start the day!
This has been a HUGE help in starting my day off smoothly! My kids know to come in the room and watch the board for announcements. And if they miss one, they just sit and wait a minute until it comes back on the board again.
This includes a zip file with the Power Point presentation (all set up and ready to go) and 33 messages to drop into your morning announcements. I'll be adding more messages as needed!
