As with the last packet, my goal with Good Morning Work (GMW) is to spiral review basic reading concepts, standards, and skills in a straightforward and non-threatening manner. The September Set focused more on Kindergarten standards that should have been mastered (or at least introduced) last year. This set steps things up a bit with the introduction of nouns, proper nouns, compound words, and punctuation. Just take a look-see at a few of the pages below. And, oh yeah . . . these are free to take with you today. Try 'em before you buy 'em is my motto. If you like what you see, visit my TPT Shop to pick up the new pack before October hits! How do ya like them pumpkins??

Personally, my own kidlets did a wonderful job with the September Pack. As I stated in an earlier post, I was a little hesitant to start my spiral revew this early in the year. However, my sweet crew was able to knock out the tasks much more independently than I expected. And, even that collection of sweeties that struggles was able to step up to the plate and do most of it all by themselves. I tried to use similar language (simple and as decodable as possible) when making this round too. Hopefully, my ideas of what my kiddies can and can't do are pretty spot on again :)
A huge thanks to all of my wonderful editors who gave it the once over yesterday - Teaching With Style, Queen of the First Grade Jungle, Tales from Outside the Classroom, and my teachin' bestie (Court . . . you always have my backy-back). I value all of your opinions so much and you all mean the world to this little old California blogger!!

Alright friends, I am going to try and go back to sleep for an hour or so, but something tells me I am going to be staring at the ceiling instead. Thanks for visiting and I will see you all soon.
