It has been a long time.
I am thoroughly enjoying this Winter Break.
It is much needed.
I have spent the majority of the break finishing up my Kindergarten Morning Work Series.
I have blogged a couple times about my morning routine with my students and morning work is a
huge part of that routine.
The morning work has been such a time saver for me when planning. I don’t know about you but
I would always run around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to find morning work.
My students can come in any time for 7:10 to 8:00 and it would always be such a challenge to find
meaningful and engaging activities for them to do while waiting for the day to begin.
I wanted to create my own morning work because I wanted something that was systematic and
challenged my littes. I needed a way to incorporate those foundational kindergarten skills
into our everyday routine and this morning work has been perfect for that. I
have seen so much growth and retention over the past couple of years using this morning work
with my littles.
Many times the curriculum moves a little too fast for some and I noticed that my students needed
extra practice and review and my goal and aim with the morning work was to do just that.
skills. The progression of skills always students to not only practice but also master
these essential skills.
Here is a quick look at sample pages from both the Math and Literacy for Sept-May.
Peace Out Peeps
and enjoy your Holiday Season.
