The Many Uses of Morning Work

Do you use morning work in your classroom? I love morning work. It really helps students to stay focused as everyone else files into the classroom. I also like to use them as bell work, in case math isn’t the first class of the day. It helps students to stay focused between different subjects.

I’m using my morning work pages with my children as exit tickets to use their electronic devices this summer. It keeps them focused and prevents the summer slide for math. I know lots of parents worry about reading in the summer, but sometimes they forget to reinforce math. I understand, there are so many things we as parents have to worry about. That is why I like these pages, you can half them to save on paper and also just to save on implementation. It’s just enough math to help your children review the skills.

I also like the ‘too easy’ ‘too hard’ or ‘just right’ on the bottom because then you can see how your children or students feel about that particular math concept. My daughter had fun coloring the black and white graphics when she was done too!

These morning work printables have a great format that will enable your students to work on them by themselves. This will help you free up time for last minute lesson prep. They also work well for homework. Low stress for your kids’ parents too!

I love these input/output problems. My daughter didn’t realize that each one was different based on multiplication, division, etc. So it was nice to see her solve for the correct answer.

I mentioned earlier that I used these as exit tickets in the summer, but you can use these as exit tickets during the school year too! The half-sized pages are just long enough to push your students to achieve a little bit more work before they go to recess or get to do another activity.
