Create a purposeful morning routine with these preschool morning tubs! Mornings can be hectic, bring simplicity with morning bins and get the learning started from the moment students walk in.  Morning work is the perfect classroom management strategy that allows students to develop a set procedure. Kick-off your mornings with morning stations that target prek standards while developing a purposeful morning time.

186 pages of purposeful, hands-on practice to keep your students learning all year long!

Hands-on learning is crucial to academic and motor development and these morning tubs help with strengthening fine motor skills. Print and prep these activities set out for your students, and watch their learning soar! 

You can also use these hands-on activities during centers, rotations, station work, or for early finishers.

Suggestions For Use:

Make morning work part of your classroom procedures. From the beginning of the year, teach students to hang backpacks, put lunchboxes away, and grab a morning tub. This will quickly become the consistent morning routine your students know and look forward to. The management is up to you, whether you want to assign partners to specific tubs or let your students choose.

Additional Materials: 

Most of the things you need will be things that you may have in your classroom or can find fairly reasonably at your local stores. The manipulatives I used for these activities are dry-erase markers, magnet letters, velcro dots, pom pom balls, play-doh, clothespins, pipe cleaners, and plastic buttons.
