Morning Work Warm Ups - fun creative activities to get your students' minds going - from a 1st grade blog
Cute way to do morning warm-up. Great Blog with lots of neat ideas! This is for 1st grade, but I think even my 4th graders would enjoy this! It'd be a great way to change up our current morning work routine that speaks to numerous learning styles.

Mix it up morning routines
Hello Everyone! I thought I'd chat a bit about our Morning Warm-up routine. It is very important to me that kids have time to talk and share with each other when they get to school. It seems they always have a ton to say!! Years ago I would normally put out a pencil/paper activity or have a warm-up notebook with fix the sentences in it. I found these types of activities to be boring...and I know the kids did as well, so I developed some alternatives. Each day of the week there is a different activity planned. Magazine Monday, Tune Up Tuesday, Word Search Wednesday, Think Outside the Box Thursday, and Fidget With it Friday. Each day I encourage kids to share while they are reading, investigating, or manipulating. I don't have pics of Word Search Wednesday, but you can imagine sight word or chunk word games and searches. Magazine Monday!! Tune up Tuesday! Reading Poetry With a friend Create and Share! Turn it upside down!! :) Play Doh for Fidget With it Friday! Pipe Cleaners too!! click here for your printable morning warm up schedule For your Think Outside the Box printables, click here! :) I know your kids will want to get to school on time so they won't miss the morning Warm Up!! Thanks for taking time out of your day to take a peek!! Here's to Warm Mornings!! Joyfully! Nancy
Hello Everyone! Just a quick post today, then off to some science training!! One of my most popular post is the one I did on my morning warm ups. I thought I'd rework and create a little pack. I am not a fan of just a pencil/paper activity every day for the kids to do as soon as they get to school, but I do want them reading and/or writing and/or talking! :) Every morning while I'm taking lunch count, attendance, organizing notes from parents, etc., the kids follow our Morning Warm up schedule. Most days there is an independent, hands on, pair, share activity. Here's the schedule: The mini unit describes each of the warm ups!! They warm up brains for about 10-15 minutes. The next thing we do is our morning meeting. The pack includes this little rap, a little song, and some morning meeting rules. Morning meeting is a time where we grow together as a class community. The pack gives a little more information about morning meeting. Hope you can use some of this to make your mornings bright!! For your 13 page free download printables, click here!! Have a good morning!! Joyfully! Nancy

Writing Goals chart. I can see using something like this on a daily basis. Perhaps clothes pins with student's names clipped directly to the chart would save space. This could be adapted for 2nd and 3rd grade. ~Zeek's Zoo~: Writing Posters

Edudemic presents an elegant graphic from Mia MacMeekin showing 27 different ways to flip the classroom. It is a great reminder that teachers need not always rely on online lecture/presentation when flipping. It is also an inspiration to those who are tentative about trying the flipped classroom or overwhelmed by creating original content for their students. May it inspire all of us to give the flipped classroom a try - more often or for the first time.
We chat about flipping classrooms every week on Edudemic and it’s for good reason: this relatively new classroom organization style has been adopted by countless teachers around the world. Typically, the kind of adoption flipped classrooms has seen is reserved for major things like the Common Core or even iPad integration. But flipped classrooms has teachers, administrators, and students all engaged and placing the learning on center stage rather than the teacher.

a Class*y Collaboration: Did You Really Do Your Best? (Student Reflections @ the End of a Lesson)
Students reflect on their work as they turn it in. They put it in the color tray they think that matches the effort they made.
Students reflect - don't use colors - use number system on corner of assignments before turning in - 3 - got it, 2 - almost there, 1 - not yet, I need help
Do before hand in work.. either at this station or at completed work bin station...Having students reflect before turning in their work!
This is a great idea to promote whole child thinking. It makes the learners reflect and feel that they are supported because they put in effort. They feel safe about getting something wrong and that they can ask for help. By implementing this in the classroom, students will feel more comfortable and create a more positive environment and classroom climate.
Having students reflect before turning in their work! Alternative: Have a red, yellow and green small metal bucket and a white bucket to hold students pop sticks with their names on them. Students at the end of the lesson put their pop stick in the colour bucket they feel best suits their learning.
Wow! Love this year round display. Helpful to the teacher and encourages students to self-assess.
Having students #reflect before turning in their work to improve #classroom #climate
EVALUATE: Students reflect on what they have learnt.
