Morning Work Ideas

 As we know, students thrive on expectations and routines. Establishing a good morning routine provides your students with a solid start to their day. Part of that morning routine is to wake up their brain and get them ready to learn for the next 6 hours. I have a few different morning work ideas for you. They are simple and allow students to practice vital skills, independently. 

1. Read, Trace, Glue & Draw

This activity is truly one of my favorites and I always had it as an option for morning work. Students practice sentences and handwriting. There are three formats available to easily differentiate for your students.

At the beginning of the year, I like to provide the tracing option for students. Forming letters in the beginning of kindergarten is hard! So for a few months, students practice tracing the sentence. Once students develop strong letter formation, they begin writing the sentence on their own.
