Ready to change how you do morning work? Looking for some new ideas? I have written several posts about my morning message system that is a spiral review of important reading skills. It is also differentiated which helps when your class includes a range of ability levels. (Morning messages from my April file are shown above.)
Post #1: My morning routine which includes management tips.
Post #2: Hectic schedule this year? Set up morning messages as a writing center. This post includes tips.
Post #3: Improve your students’ handwriting with morning messages.

Each of the grade level packets include ten morning messages.
By request, I bundled my September – May grade level packets (links above) into bundles with 90 messages.
By request, I bundled two grade levels together. There are 10 messages of each grade level in these packets (20 messages per packet).
Kindergarten – 1st grade
By request, I am adding more grade level packets for teachers who do morning message daily. You can follow my store or Facebook page if you want to be notified when I add more of these packets. I am selling Volume 2 (10 messages) separately and as a combo with Volume 1 (10 messages) so teachers have the option of having 20 messages. Below are the ones I’ve finished so far.
Morning Messages are also included with my Sub Plans:
