This pack was designed to combine the morning message and calendar into one, so you don’t have to think about what your message will be each day. You can use this pack by simply printing, putting it in a screen protector, and writing on it with a vis-à-vis or Expo marker. This can be used under a document camera and then hung up for students to refer to throughout the day. You could also print a copy and write it directly onto the paper. Or, print them poster size and laminate. If you are feeling extra creative, you could just write the message right onto a chart paper. If your smart board supports Powerpoint you could use it there as well. The possibilities are endless.
This is NOT meant to be an independent task like morning work, but rather a special time of the day for inquiry and small teachable moments where learning is supported and classroom community is created There are a lot skills practiced within this pack! Three new sight words (Fry's list) are introduced each week! Check out the preview for a more in-depth look.
There is one editable slide at the end, so that you can create you own messages.
