Morning Routines in the Classroom
Teacher problem: I STILL haven’t gotten into my room to get my stuff unloaded or set up, so I’m stuck living on Pinterest! Pinterest is a teacher’s best friend in the summer… I wanted to share my Pinterest finds with you guys. Today is all about my Pinterest-inspiration for morning routines in the classroom.
Ideas for Morning Routines in the Classroom
I love anchor charts!! This is amazing for second grade because some kids are reading, and some kids are not, so the picture and sentences really help!
Ohhhh Lisa, how much I love you!! This pin is amazing! How perfect is this for my search for a morning routine. Click that link and read more!!
This is a check-in chart from my Owl Class Decor Unit.
Check-in charts for students are a great tool to help keep your morning calm and organized. Once they get in the classroom, they check on the chart so I can glance over at 8:45 and see who hasn’t checked in for attendance.
The clothespins and ribbon lunch tags are also a great addition. At my school, we had to give a number when we took attendance so our cafeteria would know how many lunches to prepare. On the front of the clothespin are the kid’s name and number code for lunchtime.
These picture cue schedules are great for non-readers.
Ideas for morning work…
Once the students are settled and unpacked, they can head to their desks to work independently (or with partners if you feel they need some extra assistance with morning work).
My kids LOVE their morning work. They practice their name and date at the top, then practice spiraling math and ELA skills on the page. I have links to all morning work sets below…
On the back of my morning work, I put handwriting sheets where students have to fix the problems and rewrite the sentences with neat handwriting.
