I spent hours figuring this out so I thought I'd share in case someone else needed something similar. Basically, it's a daily worksheet to be completing as morning work/bellwork. The first box is the "Answer of the Day" box. I will write the answer on the board (ex - 1,000 or Barack Obama) and the kids will write the questions (ex - What is 500x2? or Who is our president?). The second box is for the kids to choose their mood. Mostly, it's just fun, but it also lets me see if they are starting the day in a bad mood, so I can watch for ways to help that child/cheer them up. The third box is for spelling words, they will just copy them. We have 20 so 4 words x 5 days means they get through the list by Friday. The last box is for a journal entry, they will either free write or answer a question I provide.
It's two pages, the first page has a large left margin and the second page has a large right margin so you can print them back to back and then bind/staple on the left side.

You have to click "read online" to see both pages.
Also, I'm a new teacher, so if anything has ideas on how to improve this I would appreciate them. I'm thinking the kids can get through it in about 15-20 min (5th grade). Does that sound right?
