Free Morning Work Packets: Limited Availability


I just love that every class I have every year is so different from all the other classes I have ever had. I am really amazed by how the group dynamics change from year to year. Because each class is so different from all the others, I find that at this time of the year, I end up creating something special just for my new class. Below are some of the new products I created recently for my new class. They are for sale in my TpT store. If you are interested in them, just click on the picture to see what each packet has to offer. The morning work packets are sold separately AND as a combo for a slightly lower combined price.

HOWEVER, I am offering all of them for FREE to the first 10 people who comment to tell me about one thing that you like to do for morning work in your classroom. 

I am always looking for new ideas. I would love it if you wanted to follow my blog, but that is not a requirement. The first 10 people will receive my Community Workers packet, and both Fine-Motor Skills and Initial Sounds Morning Work packets. You MUST leave an email address that I can send these files to. They are zipped files and will need to be unzipped because of the number of pages in each packet.

Here's hoping you are off to a great new school year with your new class!!!





Enjoy!

  1. Hi there! In the beginning of the year, the kids just color until they understand their routine. After that I have them work on their handwriting books. I love these packets! Thank you for the chance to win them!

  2. Hi there! Thank you very much for a chance to have these packets! What we do in my classroom in the beginning of the year is color until they get their morning routine down pat. After we are successful with that, we move to our handwriting books or other morning work packets.

  4. Wow! Great giveaway! I call my morning work, "Table Talk"....and it can be a variety of things...manipulatives, free drawing, puzzles, skill review...and LOTS of talking. We try to give the kiddos time to talk with friends so we can then have a focused instructional time later!

  5. I love morning work because it's a way for me to assess how my kids are doing on the skills that were previously taught. (And for me to have a cup of coffee while the kids are busy with their morning work! :P)

  6. Usually while we go over their message books, register, etc. the children have a quiet reading or finishing time. They like to start the day this way, and it gives us the chance to read messages and call the register efficiently.

    Thank you so much for this gift! Your blog is great!

  7. The beginning of the year, I use "review pages" for morning work. Later on, the children write in their journals.

  8. I love to start out with a "name ticket" on a slip of paper. I start out with first name, then first name on front and 1 - 10 on back. Then I move to first & last name on the front, then first & last name on the front and 1 - 20 on the back. Depending on the students we progress through the year. I hope this makes sense! They get really good at writing their names and numbers!!! Amber ~ Kindergarten Rocks Blog 5krocksblog@gmail.com

  9. Normally I do journals as morning work with my students. I would love to find something that would also review skills we have been working on.

  10. Wow your packs look awesome! We do journals for morning work. Each child works at his or her own level and might trace his name, write his name, label his drawing or write sentences to go with his drawing. I also follow your blog. :-)

  13. At the beginning of the year, I have them do basic sight word wordsearches, or write their numbers. I also try to find some easy reading, following directions activities. Then I progress to a short story with questions or math problems.

  15. I like to have a predictable morning routine that includes the same calendar sheet everyday, paired with a more individualized morning work.

    Thanks so much!!

  16. For morning work, I love to have my students do something routine so they know exactly what to do when they come in in the mornings. I have a rotation of stations that include I Spy books, drawing, using dry erase boards to practice words or letters, and a math game that we have learned the week prior. It keeps them busy, focused, and quiet.

  17. I use my morning work as extra practice for something that my kinders already have learned. It's also the time that I practice cutting and gluing too!

  19. I am always looking for new ideas for morning work too! 5 school days in, and my students are working on writing their names. We will move to phonemic awareness after that. Hope your school year is great!

  20. I love to keep it interesting! I try to involve a different fine motor skill each day. Monday we cut and paste, Tuesday tracing, Wednesday manipulatives, Thursday name/sight word, Friday creative (coloring, colored pencils, glitter glue, etc.) I have found that changing the how we do morning work each morning keeps it exciting. Thanks for the opportunity to share!

  21. This year I'm going to work on idiom studies as our "getting started" activity.

  22. I went to a Kim Adsit workshop - DI for the Little Guy. She uses Monday journals as a way to see growth throughout the year. I have started using them this year as Mondays morning work. Tuesday - Friday we work on name writing - especially at this point and then move to high frequency words.

  23. For morning work I like to use the classroom library, especially at the beginning of the year. The Kinders can lie on the rug and share books. This is a great way to make new friends. vhair61215@gmail.com

  24. Well I'm not teaching right now but will be homeschooling soon. When I taught fourth grade I had a basket of activities (morning work) with a different activity each day (usually spelling-related). I also had a rule that the morning was a good time to sharpen pencils so kids wouldn't get up all the time to sharpen them! Thanks for offering this freebie!

  25. For morning work with my students, I have them work on their skills packet -- practice writing letters, identifying numbers, colors and shapes and practice writing the school pin number and typing their password for when we go to the computer lab. Each day I focus on a different skill.

  26. One thing I like to do for morning work is phonics, it is an important foundational skill needed for developing a good reader.

    Thanks for the opportunity
    Take care
