Daily Slides Templates

Students will love ending the year with fun Daily Slides Templates. I love to display the slides in the morning to welcome kids to the classroom. They read about the day’s events and important reminders and start simple tasks as everyone settles in. The slides are also used to transition to different centers and wrap up the day.
