One of my favorite ways to begin my day is with morning messages. I have done it a variety of ways through the years. I began the system below when I was preparing for my maternity leave. At that time, I was writing my morning messages on chart tablet paper each day. I didn't want my long term sub to have to do that each day. I wanted to simplify things for her. When I returned I continued this system because I really liked it.
In the morning, my students put away their backpacks, turn in their homework, and then go to the check in station. At the check in station they look for their group number to see what their extension assignment is for that day's morning message assignment and pick up their assignment.
The extension assignments are on differentiation cards and are how I differentiate the assignments. There are six differentiation cards included with the packets.
There are 10 assignments included with each packet. Each packet is aligned with Common Core.
Answers keys are also included.
