Sometimes your students need a real quick review. While you are taking attendance and lunch count, daily morning practice and/or review can be a huge help. It is these few minutes a day that can really make the difference. A student has a chance to review a skill that they need extra help with. It also keeps skills that have already been taught fresh in students' minds.
I use these quick daily Common Core reading passages at the beginning of my lessons. Use them as a quick 5 minute daily morning review or send them home as Common Core aligned reading homework. For more information click the link.
