Looking for Warm-up Activities for Kindergarten?
When students enter the classroom, it can be quite a chore to turn on their minds so early in the morning.
Instead of a sudden start, ease students into concentration by beginning every day with a warm-up exercise.
Shake off the grogginess with our collection of 50 interactive activities that center on English language arts and mathematics skills. This spiral review of Kindergarten-level standards focuses on learning objectives like:
- Onset-rime practice
- Shape, number, letter, and color identification
- Sorting and ordering
- Making inferences
- Pattern recognition
And a lot more!
Display an activity on your interactive whiteboard for students to complete when they enter your class each day and watch their minds wake up.
Scaffolding + Extension Tips
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.
Students can write their answers in a warm-up journal or a mini dry-erase board.
Provide the student(s) with our Kindergarten Daily Warm-Up 3, Kindergarten Daily Warm-Up 4, or the Grade 1 Daily Warm-Up to challenge their skills.
Put students in pairs or teams to complete the activities collaboratively.
The activities in this teaching resource vary in complexity and in the time needed to complete them. To ensure you don’t repeat an exercise, change the heading color to red or simply move completed slides to the end of the presentation.
