For each velcro blank, I have a word and visual cue. Additionally, I used color coding to further support independence. Each blank is mounted on a different color. Then, I store all of the response options in a binder on pages of corresponding colors to the blank. Students can flip to the matching color to find the response options when it is their turn to fill in the blank.

To further facilitate active engagement during our Morning Message, I created accompanying differentiated books and worksheets which each student can use to follow along. These can also be used for most calendar times in the classroom to facilitate student engagement.
For some students, I slipped the worksheets into dry erase sleeves to be used over and over again. Other students preferred to take home their worksheet each day so I made a stack of copies for them to use. The books work better for my students who are easily visually overwhelmed. Each page corresponds with a different blank on the message.
