My class started a shapes unit on last week.  Even though we had 2 snow days we were able to do a lot of intro activities.  We started with a shapes circle map.  My students brainstormed as many shapes as they could think of.  The next day we compared shapes by the different features each shape has.  We made shapes from toothpicks and marshmallows.  We had a great time!!!
 
 
 
We read these two books.
 
 
 
 
We also watched a shapes video on Brainpop Jr.
 
 
We also made this emergent reader that you can pick up on my facebook fan page.

Soooo.....How would you like to win ELA Common Core Morning Work for an Entire Year.  Well you can.....
I finally finished by big morning work bundle and I really want to give it away to 5 of my followers!!!
 
You can preview the BUNDLE here!!!
 
http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Morning-Work-Bundle-for-ELA-Common-Core-Entire-Year-1051322
 
Here are some features of each morning work page.  Each page features 10 problems with a bonus problem for fast finishers.  Each page is numbered 1-180.  Each problem has the matching CCSS standard and an I can statement.  Each page has a test practice problem so students can practice bubbling in answers. 
 
I am not biased at all (lol) but I really love my morning work.  I really do stand behind this product because I use it with my own firsties.  The other 7 first grade classrooms at my school use it everyday as well.  We are seeing great gains in our students' reading skills.  I will definitely say that my students really love it and are engaged while working on it.  Don't forget that you could make this into a workbook to use for the year as well
Here is one student completing a page from the bundle.

  3. This would be an amazing addition to my classroom. I am struggling to make my morning work common core for my Firsties.

  4. Each day will be a fabulous review and a chance to build on the skills introduced. It will, also, encourage independence and, in some cases, the cooperative and collaborative efforts to promote individual success through class family efforts.

  12. we just started morning work and me kids love it..I love to review their skills and do any mini lessons on things we haven't gotten to yet.

  13. Wow! I think the morning work is important because it gives the students independence (while we get other stuff completed) and it's a great way to keep spiraling back to previously learned skills. Awesome giveaway! :o)

  19. We have not had a steady morning work routine this year. And even though my district doesn't follow common core, these are skills that they need! We don't cover most of it directly, but within the writing workshop. I would LOVE to have this to help reinforce these skills throughout the year!

  26. I'm always on the lookout for more morning work ideas!! I teach Kinder but this pack looks like it would be great prep for them!

  27. Would love to use these actually for homework as well :) My kids would love them!

  28. My students eat breakfast in the classroom, so I would probably use this during Daily 5 or maybe even as homework. It would be great for parents to see exactly what the Common Core looks like to their child!

  29. Great as spiral review, but I also find when students have been absent, meaningful morning work can still be done independently as make-up work that they all can do!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Morning work is a must for me! My firsties look forward to doing it every morning. I do have one that we are using but this one has the I can and really covers and spiral a lot of the common core standards.My students could benefit tremendously from using this. Do you have one for a math? :)
