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.

This packet is actually the 8th in a series. In my Back To School Morning Work set, I give you everything you need to organize, set up, and label your morning work along with activities to get you started and lay the groundwork for future sets like this one.

Included in this set:

This set includes 43 activities for the month of April, including '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.
