I don't really have morning activities for two reasons.
Reason #1: I teach at a school that provides breakfast for every student and they eat it in the classroom. Yes, you read that right -IN THE CLASSROOM. I can't see me putting a paper on a student's desk while they are trying to eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Yes, you read that correctly too. We have that for breakfast one day a week. Other breakfast delights include sausage pancake on a stick (looks like a corn dog), cereal with milk, pigs in a blanket, and cheese omelets. There are mornings that those desks have big greasy fingerprints or sticky messes all over them.
Reason #2: Not all my kids walk in the door at the same time. Some walk in the door at 7:45 while others come walking in at 8:00. You see the problem.
So instead of written activities, we have a morning routine.
I have this poster posted on my small bulletin board at the front of the classroom.
At approximately 8:00 announcements come on the speaker, we say the pledges together, finish up breakfast, clean up and go right into math calendar.
I have tried having something on the promethean board for students to work on or having a paper for them to do but this year it just hasn't flowed smoothly or worked out to my satisfation. So for now, we are sticking to our morning routine.
