I was tired of coming up with new Morning Work every week, so I decided to roll my Number of the Day and Word of the Day into my circle time and add a Daily News section. After my kiddos unpack we do circle time immediately, and then they have to sit down and do their morning work. If they paid attention during circle time, this task is simple and allows me enough time to read notes, take attendance, and send messages to the office. All I have to do is copy this template every Monday morning and I am all set for the week ahead.
