    Morning Work
    By Stephanie

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I also started morning work from day one. Every morning, on the board I write, Good Morning
    1. turn in homework
    2. sharpen pencils
    3. move clothespin(lunch count)
    4. complete paper at the board.
    My paper at the board is usually a reading comprehension worksheet, since right now we need to work on this skill, and a Doodleloop. I have found that these Doodleloops are the best thing for morning work, and the kids love them. The workshhets have a different picture everyday, and they have to write how ever many complete sentences about the picture. I have seen a remarkable improvement in their sentence structure, and creativity since the beginning of the year! This morning work keeps them busy for about 20 minutes, and if the Doodleloop is a particularly neat one, there is absolute silence! My principal was shocked when she subbed for me one morning! I was very proud.
