This morning work product will save your mornings, your sanity, your time–you name it! Mess-less, stress-less, and (almost) paperless! A year's worth of morning journal prompts will engage your students, make them think creatively, and have fun!
***THIS IS NOW UPDATED: IT INCLUDES A BUTTON TO PLAY CALMING CLASSICAL MUSIC WHILE STUDENTS WORK! YOU MAY ALSO FULLY EDIT THE TITLE, DATE, AND STUDENT RESPONSE EXAMPLE ON EVERY SLIDE***
Prompts are organized to cut down on teacher direction-giving time during the busy morning time. The electronic nature of the prompts creates a COPY-FREE product for teachers! Students simply respond to prompts daily in their morning journals (spiral notebooks).
Prompts follow this schedule:
- Make It Monday: (Varies between: ‘Draw a picture & write a sentence about it', ‘Draw a picture and label it', or ‘Make a list')
- True Life Tuesday: (Write facts about ___________)
- Would You Rather Wednesday: (Would you rather _______ or _______?)
- Thoughtful Thursday: (Questions that make students think deeply: Why do you think…, How do…, How long would it take…)
- Free Write Friday (Write or draw about anything you want!)
- Each prompt includes an example layout or response so students can clearly see the format expected.
- This format is predictable for students, which makes expectations clear and consistent and lowers the amount of time spent asking and answering questions about directions each day.
Included in this pack, you will receive:
- 40 weeks of unique prompts (200 altogether)
- Morning Journal Covers
- Directions for Editable Options
- Directions for Classroom Implementation & Tips
- Create Your Own Prompts (Make your own fun prompts that are unique to your classroom!)
- Edit the title, date, and student response side of each slide within each weekly presentation!
