I was looking for a way to teach the Saxon morning meeting as an independent activity, so I created this template. It coincides with each Saxon lesson 121 - 135 (Saxon CA Third Grade Edition). I have included:
Number of the day
Word Problem of the day w/ explanation lines
Comparing Fractions on a number line
Partitioning shapes into equal parts
Clock (elapsed time)
I copy the Morning Math Work into a packet and give it to the students. When they walk in, they take out their packets and get started independently. This gives me time to take attendance and check homework. After about 15-20 minutes, we go over it whole class.
