Light bulb moment! Create simple, uncomplicated morning work pages they could learn to do independently that would review Language Arts and math concepts they were familiar with! I could "kill two birds with one stone," so to speak. My genius idea (uh....hm....) worked beautifully! The kids loved the daily challenge and retained so much of what they had learned! And, thus, it began, and I never looked back.
In that same fashion, I have created this FREE week-long Common Core Morning Work for 1st grade, to be used the first week or so of school, to help get the kiddos in the perfect morning routine.
