These morning tubs for first grade are the perfect way to build academics, fine motor work, social skills, and PLAY into your morning routine! This set includes 18 different literacy, math, and fine motor activities for your 1st graders. While I created these morning work tubs, they would also be PERFECT for October literacy and math centers, early finisher activities, or some quiet exploration time.
This is also available in a bundle here: Morning Tubs for 1st Grade
How can I manage these centers?
There are 18 centers included, but many include multiple options and could easily be used in more than 1 tub! I know teachers who have had 1 tub per table, teachers who have paired up their students, and teachers who had 1 tub per student. Whatever works best for you and your students! I can cards are now included to put in the bins!
Will I need to buy a lot of materials?
No! I tried to create these 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.
