This morning work product will save your mornings, your sanity, your time--you name it! Mess-less, stress-less, and (almost) paperless! A year's worth of morning journal prompts will engage your students, make them think creatively, and have fun!
Prompts are organized to cut down on teacher direction-giving time
during the busy morning time. The electronic nature of the prompts creates a COPY-FREE
product for teachers! Students simply respond to prompts daily in their morning journals (spiral notebooks).
Prompts follow this schedule:
•Make It Monday
(Varies between: 'Draw a picture & write a sentence about it', 'Draw a picture and label it', or 'Make a list')
•True Life Tuesday
(Write 3 Facts About ______)
•Would You Rather? Wednesday
(Would you rather _______ or _______?)
(Questions that make students think deeply: Why do you think..., How do..., How long would it take...)
•Free Write Friday
(Write about anything you want!)
This format is predictable
for students, which makes expectations clear and consistent
and lowers the amount of time spent asking and answering questions about directions each day.
Prompts are organized into 40 files for 40 weeks. These prompts are not seasonal, so you can use the pre-bundled weeks in any order you'd like!
Included in this pack, you will receive:
•40 weeks of unique prompts (200 altogether)
•Morning Journal Covers (4 Designs)
•Create Your Own Prompts (Make your own fun prompts that are unique to your classroom!)
•Build Your Own Week (Use my pre-made prompts and place them in a different sequence)
•Directions for Editable Options
•Directions for Classroom Implementation & Tips
*Each prompt also includes an example answer so students can clearly see the format expected.*
This product will free up your mornings and build student independence and direction-following!
