My first year of teaching I will admit that I did not do this well. Thankfully I have improved my mornings. Last year I decided to purchase a gold membership with The Mailbox. It is hands down the best $2.99 a month I could ever spend. This year they have included common core aligned morning work. It is engaging and age appropriate. It is work that they could complete themselves, however my aide loves to do it with them.
My ONLY downfall with the magazine subscription is that it is no longer sent has a hard copy. Therefore I have to do all the printing. When I get a new magazine I print it in entirety so that I have a hard copy of it.
If a Gold Membership is not in the cards for you right now they have a ton of free reproducibles for you to utilize.
You can also stop over at my store for a December morning work FREEBIE!
The morning work is designed to be used for one week in December. I will be posting more so keep an eye out each week! Perfect way to keep your kiddos on task, engaged and learning!
