Reflection: Routines and Procedures Mix and Fix Sentences - Section 1: Why this Lesson?


Morning work is just what is sounds like, work that students do first thing in the morning.  The reason why I have morning work is because I like for students to have something waiting for them when they come in.  There are many reasons why I like to do this:
- Students get used to the routine of coming in and turning their brains on.
- Students come in and get away from the door because they see something waiting at their seats.
- Students are less likely to chat with each other or with me because they need to get to work.

Within the first fifteen minutes of the day, I have to check folders, read and respond to parent notes, send money to the office or cafeteria, take attendance, watch announcements and get everyone settled.  I will be honest; I don't have time to deal with students at this time, but I want them to be doing something meaningful.  So, as I am running around like a chicken with its head cut off, my students are doing their morning work- they are practicing their reading and writing skills to become more proficient.  Morning Work, especially with Mix and Fix Sentences, is a really helpful AND useful time every day!
