Engage your students each and every morning with these low-prep activities

Kiss your chaotic mornings goodbye! 👋

Do your mornings sound like this …?

It's 9:01 AM and your kindergarteners are lined up at your desk asking you 236 questions about what is next for the day. You're trying to check folders, and take attendance, and you realize it doesn't seem like anyone knows what they should be doing this morning.

Then, you see a parent standing in the doorway with a late student, who's wanting to talk. You smile, embarrassed, because of the chaos that is in your classroom this morning.

a good morning routine can make or break your day.

Now imagine your students walking in, saying good morning, and quietly putting their belongings away. You're dealing with a late bus issue, but it's no big deal because your students are quietly working, independently in their spots.

They know the morning routine like the back of their little hands and keep working quietly through morning announcements.

Morning routine? Why do I need one?

There are SO many benefits of a great morning routine!

This morning tub bundle includes 9 months' worth of kindergarten activities that are themed throughout the year! This includes over 190 different activities for you to use with your students so they never get bored!

Each of the 190+ activities includes teacher-friendly directions as well as an “I Can” visual directions page to promote independence.

The morning tubs were created to only use basic classroom supplies. They were designed to be flexible so that teachers can use what they have in their classrooms.

The recommended supplies are dice, plastic bears, plastic cubes, spinners (or paperclip/pencil), play dough, mini erasers, mini clothespins, magnetic letters and numbers, and metal rings for storage – but you definitely do not need all that to be successful!
