Morning Messages

 My students write a brief morning message every morning as they arrive.  It goes like this:  Good morning _____. Today is _____. Today we will _____ and ______.  Tomorrow - ___________.  Most of my students finish this within about 10 minutes and than they move on to their morning folders.  The other day searching around on Pinterest, I saw this cute idea of kids writing with paint and a Qtip.  So yesterday morning before the kids arrived, I set them up with the materials they would need to try this.  They really did love it.  It took such huge concentration and they were sooooo quiet, lol.  I guess it's good to change things up every once in awhile.  Might have to think of some other new ideas!
