I wanted to share a picture from a friend of mine. Her son was enjoying the morning message in kindergarten. I believe that morning message is important. I am happy he had time to write it! They could easily move to personal messages from here!
Here is a Scholastic webpage that talks about the importance of morning message!
Here is an article about the morning message in early childhood classrooms.
Morning message is a great way to use continuous text, teach phonics, and model reading and writing strategies.
