In my classroom, students start each morning by completing a page from my Daily Morning Work resource.
Before we started a morning work routine, our mornings were chaotic. Students were were lingering in the hallway, socializing, or using the time to read or finish work from the previous day. Trying to complete those important morning tasks and get the students ready to start the day was crazy! You know how that goes, right?!
Well, I knew that something needed to change. I needed something that was engaging enough to get my students excited to work each morning. But, I also needed something that would help them review important concepts they needed practice with.
So, after planning this resource and working on it for about four months, they are finally ready: 5th Grade Math and English Language Arts Morning Work Daily Review and 4th Grade Math and English Language Arts Morning Work Daily Review. Now, our mornings are organized and productive for both the students and myself.
This resource is intended to get your students started off on the right track each morning. By using my Daily Morning Work, your students will develop a strong routine and receive constant review of Common Core-aligned problems. Because this resource allows your class to work independently, you will have time to take attendance and get organized for the day while they work.
This resource includes a special section of teacher instructions to help you get started. In these teacher instructions, you will find information on how this resource is organized, ideas on how to assemble this resource, printing instructions, and copy/paper-saving ideas. I also answer questions about grading morning work and even give you ideas on implementation!
