STILL haven't gotten into my room to get my stuff unloaded or set up, so I'm still living on Pinterest!
Pinterest is a teacher's best friend in the summer!
Ideas for morning routine:

Love me some anchor charts!! This is amazing for second grade because some kids are reading and some kids are not, so the picture and sentences really help!

Check in chart for students! Once they get in the classroom, they check on the chart so I can glance over at 845 and see who hasn't checked in for attendance.
The clothespins and ribbon lunch tags are also a great addition.
At my school, we had to give a number when we took attendance about how many lunches our cafeteria needed to prepare. On the front of the clothespin is the kids name and number code for lunch time.

Even better for non-readers!!
My kids LOVE their morning work.

On the back of my morning work, I put handwriting sheets where students have to fix the problems and rewrite the sentences with neat handwriting.
