May Morning Work for First Grade
Hey, y'all! Morning work in May can be be a bit challenging with everyone counting down the days to summer break, but it doesn't have to be! With consistent routines and independent practice, your first grade students will be on task till the last day of school! (At least we can hope. 😂)
We've been using our monthly morning work for most of the year and the kids love it. It includes a spiral review and not so many of the same kinds of problems each day that the kids lose interest. There's something for EVERYONE to be successful at.
Since it's the end of the year, this unit reviews nearly every skill students have learned throughout first grade. In math, they review fact families, adding and subtracting, skip counting, time, money, number bonds, measurement, even and odd numbers, and more.
In reading, students review editing sentences, articles "a" and "an", contractions, compound words, parts of speech, syllables, and handwriting.
As students finish up, we go over their morning work and make any corrections we need to. Students write in pencil during their independent time and make corrections with a colored pencil or crayon. It helps me see what they could do on their own and what they needed help with.
