This free morning work sample from my full year of whiteboard morning journal prompts 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 3 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 about anything you want!)
•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.
•Prompts for the entire journal pack available for purchase HERE are organized into 40 files for 40 weeks. These prompts are not seasonal, so you can use the pre-bundled weeks in any order you'd like!
