These first grade morning work tubs are the perfect way to build academics, fine motor work, social skills, and PLAY into your morning routine! Each set will include 18 different literacy, math, and fine motor activities for your first graders. While I created these for morning bins, they would also be PERFECT for literacy and math centers, early finisher activities, or some quiet exploration time.

How can I manage these morning tubs?
There are 18 morning tubs included, but many include multiple options and could easily be used in more than one tub! I know teachers who have had one per table, teachers who have paired up their students, and teachers who had one per student. Whatever works best for you and your students!
Will I need to buy a lot of materials?
No! I tried to create these morning tubs with materials in mind that you already have in your classroom, but you could EASILY swap out my suggestion for something you already have! That’s also a great way to make these centers new again – just add new manipulatives!
Did you include black and white versions?
I tried to include a black and white version for most activities, however for some it just did not make sense (for example, real photographs that you can print in gray scale) or color-based activities.
