Last summer, I saw this on Pinterest...
After clicking on the link, I read about the "Question of the Day" by First Grade Blue Skies.
I loved the idea and decided to purchase the unit on TPT. Each morning my students have a routine.
2. Put planner and folders in correct baskets.
3. Put backpack/lunchbox in cubby.
4. Use the restroom and get water.
5. QUESTION OF THE DAY
6. Get Morning Work and get busy!
I hung the question ring right beside my two pans. My students would answer the "Question of the Day", and then they would move their number magnet from the NO pan to the YES pan. It gave them one more thing to do in the morning. I could clearly see who had done it and who hadn't. Occasionally, they would forget; however, they LOVED doing this and WANTED to do this. So, with a quick glance, I could also see who was absent. Of course, I would confirm their absence with our lunch choices. It was fun! They were learning! And let me be honest- It kept them busy longer.
Please go to First Grade Blue Skies and read about it for yourself. You need it! ; )
Last year, my number magnets were not very cute. This year, I have made bright new number magnets that will go along with my Flower Theme.
