Morning work, bell work, or MORNING WAKE UP - regardless of what you call it, it is important to get your little rascals’ brains engaged as soon as your day begins.
Morning Wake Up is your answer to that in-depth, meaningful engagement! of course, this kind of practice is perfect for homework and small group instruction too! It is also a perfect independent or directed activity for any time of the day!
This is NOT a digital resource. We have it printed into a student workbook and send it home with our distance learning students. You could also send home copies of the pages in your work packets. We work with our Morning Wake Up each day with our kiddos during our virtual lessons as covers so many essential standards each day.
Reviewing and practicing concepts learned in both ELA (reading, writing, grammar, spelling, and phonics) and MATH within the prior days and weeks allows for a depth of understanding and mastery of skills. Direct and prior instruction in imperative. Practice with repetition helps cement that new learning.
The HUGE student workbook provides your students an opportunity to review and practice second-grade skills and standards aligned to common core. Every section on each page is noted with its key common core standard. While spiral in nature, MORNING WAKE UP builds in difficulty with each page.
This 2nd-grade resource includes LOTS and LOTS of practice in reading and analyzing both informational and narrative text. Additionally, your students will build their skills in opinion writing. All that daily practice will help ensure your kiddos MASTER those important skills.
These pages are student tested and approved! My team and I have used MORNING WAKE UP for many, many years, and have been thrilled with our students' retention of new concepts. I've created this resource with 2nd graders in mind, but it works well with high firsties and is perfect for review with 3rd graders.
Combine the pages into a student workbook, or distribute the pages daily as worksheets.
This product also includes a Teacher's Handbook with notes and suggestions for the best way to utilize this in your classroom and how it can be coupled with direct instruction. A scope and sequence for the entire book is included.
