September Morning Work for First Grade
Hey, y'all! One of my favorite ways to assess my students' understanding is with morning work. Every morning, the kids eat breakfast in the classroom and trickle in. While they eat, they start on their reading and math morning work. We switch up what we're working on every few weeks so students get plenty of practice without it getting too monotonous. These September morning pages are fun, seasonal, and a great spiral review.
Each day has a few math problems and reading, grammar, and handwriting practice. My students work on their pages in pencil until time is up, then we go over our work together as a class. As we go over it, students use a colored pencil to make corrections and/or finish up their work.
This gives us plenty of time to talk about different types of math problems and grammar rules, review things already learned, and pre-teach to the next unit. The handwriting practice is one of my favorite parts. The kids had no idea I have to actually assess them on their writing. Now they're more mindful of their letter and number formation which is a bonus for everyone.
September's morning work covers things like tally marks, addition and subtraction, adding 3 numbers, base ten numbers, hundreds charts, making tens, fact families, sight words, CVC words, word families, and more.
