Every morning I have out my giant journal (chart paper), strategy posters (mini-sized) and journal prompt ready to go. I meet with half of my class who will be working in their journals and model the prompt and the strategy before we begin guided math for the day. The rest of the class is doing quiet reading and finishing up their morning procedures.
I know that tweaking it could help, so if you have ideas – share!
