The Value of Morning Work & Before the Bell Activities

As students trickle in at different times in the morning, it creates a bit of a challenging situation for teachers!

Should you try to work on grading? Should you try to teach something simple? Well, each school has different rules for what can or “can’t” happen before the bell…

So, an idea was hatched from this issue, the perfect teaching resource, aka Morning Work!

I created simple themed activities for each month! The kids can simply grab a stick and scratch paper and go to town!  It’s a mix of language arts and math skills presented in a fun way!

To prep your workouts, you simply print, cut and glue onto a stick! I chose to laminate my set so they last a little longer! Then, I found a tin I had shoved in the back of a closet and added the “title!”

You can use these activities for quick 5-minute fillers, occasional morning work activities for the class, or even brain breaks!
