What are Morning Tubs / Bins?
These age appropriate Preschool/ Pre-K Morning Bins are a great way to incorporate literacy, math, fine motor skills, and tons of PLAY into your morning routine! These bins are not limited to mornings, but can also be used for your early/fast finisher tubs, or just for some quiet exploration time at the end of the day!

Absolutely! Although I have a Kindergarten version, many Kinder Teachers will choose to incorporate both.

⭐ Materials Needed⭐
Will I need a lot of extra materials for the Morning Bins? No! I have tried to create the morning bins with resources and manipulatives that you are already have in your classroom. You can easily swap out my suggested manipulatives for some that you already own. Even the monthly Dramatic Play Sets will include all that you need to get started!
⭐ Black and White Version⭐
I included a Black and White Version that you can use to print on color paper. However, there are some color games and activities that works best printed in color.
