What educators are saying

I am so excited to start using soft start bins in my classroom this year! This resource has been a HUGE help in getting everything set up. Thank you!
I am really excited to look at beginning soft starts this year! This is nice easy guide to beginning it! :-)


Soft Start is a way to ease children into the school day. It can last anywhere from five to twenty minutes. The students engage with other students using activities in tubs that are already set up by the teacher. Many people wonder how this practice is helpful for students. Children love learning but can feel overwhelmed when given a difficult worksheet to do first thing in the morning. Allowing the students to engage in conversation, activities and learning with their peers helps the morning run more smoothly.

This Soft Start Product Includes:

  • "What is Soft Start" explanation for teacher and students.
  • Soft Start Expectation Poster
  • Six Soft Start Activities/Ideas
  • Supply List (with links)
  • Soft Start Journaling Template
  • Photos of Soft Start Bins
