Grade 1 Daily Warm-Up – PowerPoint 2

Teach Starter Publishing
PowerPoint | 83 pages | Grades: 1

Bring on the day’s lessons with math and English activities that get students excited about learning.

Start Fresh with Our Daily First Grade Warm-Up

When students are groggy, overstimulated, or anxious, getting them to focus in the morning is a tall order (and we don’t mean a tall latte order).   

But when you have a structured assignment for them to look forward to, students will enter the classroom with something else to concentrate on.  

Inside this presentation, you’ll find 83 pages packed with English language arts and mathematics-based activities to engage distracted minds and enhance focus in the classroom. 

Display a slide on your interactive whiteboard for students to complete when they enter your class each day and watch their minds wake up. Students can record their answers in a warm-up journal or a mini dry-erase board.

This Daily Warm-up includes a spiral review of first grade-level standards that focus on learning objectives like: 

And a lot more! 

This one download includes 50 interactive tasks that playfully challenge young minds. If you only did one warm-up activity per day, you’d have enough for months.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

In addition to morning warm-ups, use this activity any time you need to bring students’ minds back to learning, like after recess, lunch, and independent playtimes. 

The activities in this teaching resource vary in complexity and the time needed to complete them. Put students in pairs or teams to collaboratively complete the activities or use them in a 1:1 intervention setting. 


Provide the student(s) with our Grade 1 Level 3 or Grade 2 daily warm-up to challenge their skills. Alternatively, require students to list important vocabulary words from the activity that helped them complete their answers. 


Use the Grade 1 Level 2 warm-up to bring students up to speed. Additionally, provide students with similar completed assignments, posters, and anchor charts to help them draw on past lessons.
