Morning Work

Our new morning work baskets are still working out really well!  The kids love them and they are eager to see what will be in their basket each day.  We have 6 different baskets that we are rotating, so it takes 6 days to get through all the baskets.  Today, we will be changing out the activities so that the children do not get bored with them. 🙂  I want to make sure we are reviewing current and past skills and that the kiddos are still interested in them.

 

Here are some pictures of the activities in action:

This is one of the iSpy bags I made.  The kids are doing a great job sharing these and taking turns.  I’ll be making a tutorial on how to make these soon and will probably have some for sale.  IMG_1238

I just LOVE that they choose to read the books I added to the baskets. 🙂  I made sure they are books that we have shared together. IMG_1245This is how I keep track of who gets what basket the next day.  I take a picture of the baskets and know where to rotate them. 🙂  The kiddos don’t seem to mind if they get a basket soon after they have already had it though. 🙂
