Morning Work. It used to be a dreadful thing. Last minute scrounging for something students could do independently. So many copies...ohhhhh the copies! Directions to explain....over and over and over again as the students entered the room at staggered times.
No longer! Morning Work is heavenly now. :) I finally buckled down and created Morning Work PowerPoints last year. That's right - NO MORE COPIES!!
The format remains the same so students know what to do each day. They walk in, unpack, make their lunch choices, get out their journals and get to work! Bliss in room 205, I tell ya! ;)
Until recently, our Morning Work PowerPoints were only "PC compatible" but now they can be used with PC or Mac! Woohoo!!
If you're looking for something to keep your sanity (and copies) intact, while providing common core standards-based practice and review for your kiddos each morning, comment below to win this unit - 180 days worth of 2nd grade morning work! That's right - you will not need to think about morning work again for the entire year! And no more mornings waiting in line at the copier, either!
Here's an overview of the skills included for each quarter...
Take a look at some of the feedback from other teachers on this resource...
Do you teach 1st grade instead?? By popular request, we are working on Morning Work PowerPoints for 1st grade that will correlate with common core! The 1st Quarter ones are up and ready!
