September (No Prep) Morning Work Journals is full of Kindergarten math and literacy printables including Common Core aligned math journal prompts. The math journal prompts will engage your students and make them think creatively while having fun!
This packet has activities geared for the start of another school year and was created to get students ready to move on to more challenging activities in reading, writing, and math.
This Kindergarten Morning Journal packet is unique because it increases in the skill, stamina, and expectations as the year goes on! The year starts out simple and easy and grows as your students grow.
There are 3 worksheets per day: 1- Begin the day with a math journal prompt where the students get to illustrate it and write a sentence about their picture. (Personally, I have my students write a morning greeting such as Good morning, today is Monday, September 15, 2017, before writing their sentence).
2- A literacy worksheet comes next starring a letter of the alphabet where the students get to trace the letter, write the letter, and circle and color pictures that begin with that letter.
3- A math worksheet is included where the students get to write numbers, find numbers, make a pattern, continue a pattern, review colors, etc.
I created monthly journals for my kinders to help them achieve independence while working on literacy and math skills. I have been using morning journals for over 15 years now and not only do the kids easily transition to working independently, but they learn to work by cooperatively and in small groups with minimal assistance and direction. Moreover, it has been proven that their reading and writing skills improve tremendously with these journals.
This packet was created for Kindergarten, but also works for 1st graders who are below average and for advanced Preschoolers.

*Most of the worksheets have a small and unique icon at the beginning of each row to help the students follow along easily as well as to help you give clear and concise directions when helping the students.
*A small rectangle with 1 or more of the following... glue bottle, scissors, pencil, crayons, sits at the top of each worksheet. This helps your students know exactly what tools/materials will they need in order to complete that particular worksheet and helps avoid having a myriad of tools/materials that are not needed out to clutter their workspace.
