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).
This Kindergarten bundle is varies from my other bundle because it increases in the skill, stamina, and expectations as the year goes on! The year starts out VERY simple, and grows alongside your students! I strongly recommend checking out the preview to view the yearly overview to see exactly what it entails.
Prompts follow this schedule:
•Make It Monday
(Drawing a picture, labeling a picture, making a list, etc,)
•Trace It Tuesday
(Write numbers/number sentences and trace them with different colors)
•Write It Wednesday
(Rainbow write or color pattern write letters and sight words )
•This or That? Thursday
(Choose your favorite between two choices--for example, cats or dogs--and illustrate your answer, write your answer, write a sentence about your answer, etc.)
•Free Write Friday
(Write or draw about anything you want!)
*Each prompt also includes an example layout or response so students can clearly see the format expected.*
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.
Included in this pack, you will receive*:
•40 weeks of unique prompts (200 altogether)
•Morning Journal Covers (4 Designs)
•Directions for Editable Options
•Directions for Classroom Implementation & Tips
•Yearly Overview of Contents
•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)
*All 40 weeks have been posted as of September 2016*
This product will free up your mornings and build student independence and direction-following!
**This product is made with Kindergarten in mind, but can easily be differentiated for Pre-K or 1st grade depending on the abilities and needs of your classroom**
