Morning Message

Each day I write a message to my students. They help to choose a greeting at the start of the message , they use words from the word wall to help to spell words and assist with sounding unfamiliar words out. Once the message has been written the students read the message back. Sometimes we read the message in a funny voice.
My students are always engaged during morning message as they enjoy helping me to write the message and finding out what my message will say.
Some students with learning difficulties associate writing with specific writing tasks, the morning message shows them a functional writing task that has purpose as it conveys an important message. They can also see the link between writing and reading.
