Why do teachers use morning work?
Morning Work is ideal for teachers who need something for their students to work on in a variety of situations. As its name suggests, you can have your students work on it as you prepare for your day. Tasks like taking roll, checking homework, and dealing with the little emergencies that tend to pop up in the first few minutes every day don't have to be wasted classroom minutes. With premade morning workbooks, your students can be doing fun and quick math, language arts, writing, critical thinking, and even some reading exercises! Because the books are done in edHelper's signature style, complete with a variety of different kinds of problems on each page and with fun graphics interspersed throughout, your students won't feel like they are doing the same old boring seat work. Instead, they will enjoy those first few minutes at their desks! However, just because it's called Morning Work, that doesn't mean that you are limited to using these wonderfully flexible books in the mornings only. They also make wonderful homework books. Everything is already done for you! The books are even leveled for you, not just by grade, but by month. What does that mean? That means that when you choose a month toward the beginning of the year, you will see skills in the books that tend to be taught toward the beginning of the year. Choosing a later month (April or May) will introduce skills in the book that are typically taught toward the end of the year. edHelper has truly taken all of the guesswork out of these books! Best of all, the skills in the books are correlated to the Common Core Standards, so you can be sure that what is in the grade level book that you choose will be skills that your students are learning.
