What educators are saying

I have all the monthly morning work stations and bought this one to add in with each month to create more stations so each child had their own during Covid. They are great!
These centers are so fun! My students loved the pet theme at the end of the year. The options are great and everything is so easy to differentiate. Always so happy with your resources!

Morning Work Tubs - Morning Work Bins! Students love how engaging they are and you'll love all the amazing practice it provides. Pet-themed fine motor activities will save your sanity and engage your students. Your students won't even realize they are learning.

⭐⭐If you'd like to see a detailed account of how I implement Morning Work Tubs, what is included in each set, and the materials used, check out my Morning Work Stations page for all the details HERE.

Why Morning Work:

Morning Work Stations accomplish two very important things in my classroom. They keep my students engaged in a meaningful activity while I take attendance, talk with parents and greet students as they wander in from breakfast, a late bus or a late start to their morning. Additionally, Morning Work Tubs give me an opportunity to work in those important fine motor and sensory activities that are disappearing from our students' curriculum due to lack of time in our day. I can't say enough good things about them.

Included in this set:
This packet is the first of the THEMATIC SETS that I have been asked to make. You can find a detailed account of every activity by viewing this blog post HERE.

This set includes 33 activities with a Pet theme and 'I Can' cards for each one. These 'I Can' sheets also indicate the standard or skill that the activity addresses. You can choose the activities that fit your classroom best to use in your stations.
