Morning Work and a January Freebie!

We needed something to get our kids started off in the right direction everyday.  Something they could do independently but still practice all those math and literacy skills we have been working on.  My kids love to cut and paste, but the administration at my school wants those activities to be purposeful - not just enjoyable or FUN. With that in mind we tried our best to come up with "purposeful fun".
The thing I like best about this monthly morning work is the organization.  We made five days worth of each of five different skills for a total of 25 pages a month - more than enough.  By organizing them this way, they become familiar with the directions and procedures quickly. If we don't get to one of the pages, I put them in a workstation (center) or send them home for "homework".
I also like the flexibility these pages offer me as the teacher.  We can work on the same skill everyday for a week or work on a different skill each day - however I decide to do it.
Day 1
 Day 2
Day 3
 Day 4
Day 5
Since these packets are monthly we tried to include various holiday and special days too.
You can get 1 week of the January packet free by clicking the picture below.

Thanks for visiting The Fun Factory where we have "purposeful FUN"!!
