This packet includes 16 morning work activities!
I am always looking for a good routine to fill the time in the morning as students come into the classroom and unpack. My students have a 15 minute time span to enter the classroom so I can’t start anything too important, but I also hate to waste that time. I have finally found a schedule that seems to work. Students (and myself) LOVE the predictability of each morning. Each day of the week has a different focus…
Monday: Number Baggies
Students have number flash cards to put in order. They have several different activities to do with the cards, but the cards are updated as they master higher number recognition.
Tuesday: Mix-it, Fix-it Day
Students cut apart our words for the week and play “mix-it, fix-it” with a partner. Then they glue the word down in their word journals.
INCLUDED IN THIS PACKET
*Wednesday: Write-it Wednesday*
Students write their word wall words for the week in marker, crayon, and pencil. My kids LOVE this activity because they get to use markers! ?
Thursday: Thoughtful Thursday
Students have a morning journal entry with a prompt.
Friday: Finish it up Friday OR Free Choice Friday
It is up to the students how they spend their Friday morning! This is a great motivator! If students have work that they haven’t finished throughout the week, they have to finish. Those who work hard and complete activities, get to go to Free Choice Centers!
I have included 16 Write-It Wednesday Activities! I am working on adding the other packets!
