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!
***THIS IS NOW UPDATED: IT INCLUDES A BUTTON TO PLAY CALMING CLASSICAL MUSIC WHILE STUDENTS WORK! YOU MAY ALSO FULLY EDIT THE TITLE, DATE, AND STUDENT RESPONSE EXAMPLE ON EVERY SLIDE***
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:
oMake It Monday
: (Varies between: 'Draw a picture & write a sentence about it', 'Draw a picture and label it', or 'Make a list')
oTrue Life Tuesday
: (Write facts about ___________)
oWould You Rather Wednesday
: (Would you rather _______ or _______?)
: (Questions that make students think deeply: Why do you think..., How do..., How long would it take...)
oFree Write Friday
(Write or draw about anything you want!)
oEach prompt includes an example layout or response so students can clearly see the format expected.
oThis 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:
o40 weeks of unique prompts (200 altogether)
oMorning Journal Covers
oDirections for Editable Options
oDirections for Classroom Implementation & Tips
oCreate Your Own Prompts (Make your own fun prompts that are unique to your classroom!)
oEdit the title, date, and student response side of each slide within each weekly presentation!
