What do you have your students do as soon as they get unpacked upon arrival at school? I did various things last year, and my schedule starts with comm. arts, so I'm thinking that I'd like to do morning journals again. I used to just ask random questions, and they would have to either respond to my question or write sentences about something else on their mind. Then we gave just a BRIEF time for sharing, which was optional. What do you do in the morning??
