Morning Meetings

In many classrooms around the world, teachers begin the day with a morning meeting. This is a time where the class comes together to talk about events for the upcoming day and reflect on the previous day. Morning meetings are a great way to build community in the classroom, encourage students to share what is going on in their life and provide a gentle transition from home to school. Morning meetings typically last 15-30 minutes and can include administrative things (taking the roll, assigning jobs for the week, etc) and educational activities. You will find three different activities to incorporate into morning meetings below. Feel free to implement the same activity for a week and see how students like it, or add these ideas to your already-established rotation. These activities are intended for elementary school students.
