Featured Topic: Morning Routines

Get next year off to a good start by including these routines each morning, especially in kindergarten through 2nd grade.   Students develop calendar, place value, money, time and data collection skills through these daily routines.

Classroom management: First and second graders may be assigned different routines to perform as they arrive in the morning.   They then report back to the class during the designated morning routine class period, leading the class in counting, recitation of the date, counting money, etc.   This daily practice provides ongoing assessment for teachers as they observe student participation.
