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 (Drawing a picture, labeling a picture, making a list, etc,)
•Trace It Tuesday (Write numbers/number sentences and trace them with different colors)
•Write It Wednesday (Rainbow write or color pattern write letters and sight words )
•This or That? Thursday (Choose your favorite between two choices–for example, cats or dogs–and illustrate your answer, write your answer, write a sentence about your answer, etc.)
•Free Write Friday (Write or draw 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.
