This school year I said goodbye to traditional morning work activities. In the past, my students have entered the room to an assignment or worksheet on their desk to begin the school day. From my observations and further research, I have found that this typical classroom practice can lead to stress, anxiety, and a lack of socialization for students as they begin their day. We as adults do not immediately enter our workspaces, sit down, and get to work. We like to greet our colleagues, get a cup of coffee, and ease into the workday. Children are the same. This year I have been providing my students with a list of choices that they can do to begin their day. Each choice directly relates to the content we are learning in different subject areas, is hands-on, promotes student discourse, and allows the students to ease into their school day with no stress of completing an assignment. Each of the materials that I am requesting directly correlates to either an English language arts, math, science, or social studies theme throughout the entire school year. I would like to provide my students with more choices for each day that will continue to promote engagement in learning, while also allowing them to engage with their peers.
