Morning Work Bins That Develop Creativity and Teamwork!
Help me give my students K'nex, puzzles, Interlox, and Magna Tiles. These students are creative and curious. They need the ability to express that creativity and be excited to walk through the door every day!
I am a classroom teacher of second grade kiddos! There are typically 25 students in the classroom at a time with a lot of moving around. We enjoy doing projects, group work, task cards, and stations.
My students are beautifully creative, energetic learners, and bursting with energy.
They have a span of amazingly unique backgrounds to share with us and each is important and special.
Differentiated instruction is important to me and flexibility is important to my students.
My students are kind and considerate which helps them work well together. They are at a wonderful age of curiosity, creativity, and wonderment.
Each morning my students walk through the door excited to see me and their friends and then audibly groan when they see morning work sitting on the back table for them to do. What is the purpose of this morning work? To reinforce the lessons from yesterday? I want them to be excited to walk through the doors and want to come to school each day.
I want to give my students a chance to express the wonderful curiosity, wonderment, excitement, and natural energy of a second grader through team work and cooperation.
The morning bins of K'nex, puzzles, Interlox, and Magna Tiles will give them the ability to use their natural curiosity to build and create things together as a team. This will build relationship skills that will benefit them beyond second grade and throughout their lives.
