Morning Meeting

Compiled By: jcgy7 Bookmark and Share
Morning Meeting is a responsive-classroom inspired daily event that provides a predictable friendly start to the day. Morning Meeting provides an opportunity for kids to get warmed up for the day, enjoy participating in a friendly greeting so everyone feels welcome at school, provides an opportunity to engage with written language, and informs the kids of the schedule and expectations each day. Everyone does Morning Meeting a bit differently, but core themes persist. It should be positive, child-centered, and interactive.
Morning Greeting
Posted by:jcgy7 #125116

I have students lead morning meeting after the first quarter and whoever leads gets to pick the greetings. After they've seen them modeled, they're pretty good at coming up with their own (although sometimes they're a little overly complex!).

My kids like: abc order by first or last name, backwards greeting (walk backwards to greet the person with a handshake), grown up greeting (use Mr. and Ms. instead of first names), ball toss, speedy greeting (go around saying good morning as fast as possible), and others I can't think of right now!

Morning Meeting
Posted by:jcgy7 #139719

I write a morning message every morning that has deliberate mistakes in it. These mistakes might be word wall words spelled incorrectly, punctuation, format, capitalization, and/or grammar. I always put the number of mistakes at the top of the message so the kids know how many to be on the lookout for. Sometimes I'll leave out words that the children have to fill in that tie in with our curriculum. Sometimes I'll have an interactive morning message where they make tally marks to answer a question or have to find the answer to a math problem. They are expected to read the morning message independently when they first arrive.

During morning meeting, we do a greeting (great ideas for greetings are in the Morning Meeting book mentioned before, and the kids enjoy coming up with their own), read the message, and...

Morning Message has made a huge impact in my students' understanding of written conventions. I write the message each morning with deliberate mistakes. I put the number of mistakes at the top of the message so the kids know how many to be on the look out for. They read the message when they first come in and find some of the mistakes. They're usually eager to tell me what they found, but I tell them to "keep it in their head" until meeting. During meeting, we do a greeting, then I pick a name to read the message. They read it aloud, and are invited to fix one of the mistakes. They must tell what they're fixing and why. Then that person calls on a person to find the next mistake, etc. I usually have them alternate gender, and I have people who want to come up hold up...

I write a morning message to my students every morning. It usually is in the form of a friendly letter and I include deliberate mistakes. I try to keep the mistakes tied in with things we've been talking about or doing on daily language reviews and I also use them as review. Mistakes include things involving indenting, margins, putting the date on, punctuation, spelling of word wall words, etc. I also make the mistakes multi-level so that everybody can find at least one. I always indicate the number of mistakes at the top of the message so they know how many to look for. The kids are expected to read the morning message when they first come in and find as many of the mistakes as they can. During meeting, we do a greeting and then I pick someone to read the morning message. They read it aloud and find one of the mistakes and correct it....

Morning Meeting
Posted by:MCZ #139717

I do a very simple morning meeting. It consists of:

Going over the daily schedule on the board
Reminders of upcoming happenings
Student announces lunch menu
Students ask questions they might have (about school happenings, or due dates, etc.)
I choose 2 students to share "good news"- something happy going on in their lives.

You could do a brief word wall or lang. arts activity during this time as well.

I love this part of the morning--it only takes 10 min. and it keeps us all very connected and communicated. (:

I also use the Responsive Classroom Morning Meeting routine.

Morning Message - I write a morning message on the board that the students read when they enter the room and begin unpacking. In my message they might have to answer questions, find mistakes, write spelling words, etc. After attendance and lunch has been taken care of, we all circle up. I have a new group leader every day. (I am the group leader for the first two weeks, until they are more comfortable taking over). We greet each other (shake hands, say hello in a different language, or somehow say hello to each other. The important thing is that we always use our friends names. For example, I would begin and look to my right, shake hands with my neighbor and say "Aloha, Mary." They would then look at me and say "Aloha, Mrs. M." They would...

What I Do ...
Posted by:Mrs.EastCoast #139716

I write a morning message every day. Here is how I do it.

I start out w/ the date in the upper right hand corner. And then I return sweep, and make the greeting. I typically start w/ Dear. Sometimes I will immediately begin with "Good morning!" or "Hello Second Graders!"

I then return sweep, indent, and start the letter, which we call the body. I talk about what day it is (you can leave this blank and have kids fill it in each day for practice), I say something interesting ("Today I saw a family of ducks waddle across the street and into the small pond. It was exciting to see!"), I tell the kids what they have for specials, and I tell one thing we will do together in class that day. I end with something postive, like "I hope you have a...

It's a great way to start! I've done it all three years I've taught. I try to keep it pretty structured so that the kids can almost run it themselves, like the above poster mentioned.

This is what works for me:

1. Put on a certain song that signals everyone to come to the carpet.
2. Kids form a circle and they or I chose a greeting (there are a TON of fun ones in the MM book). I sometimes have kids be the Greeting Leader but not until about Dec. It takes them all this time to learn how to give a friendly, sincere greeting.
3. When the last person is greeted, everyone automatically stands for the pledge
4. Instead of sitting in the cirlce they go straight to their spot on the rug (in a group) and we do the morning message
5. I only sometimes hide...

My Morning Meeting (long)
Posted by:lvteaching #115001

This is how I did my morning meeting when I taught first grade. The first few weeks you really have to model/guide them, but after that, they completely take over.

I started the morning by sitting in the chair in the meeting area. The kids would stay at their seats until I started singing, kids would stand up, push in chairs, and come to carpet, bringing with them their weather graphs and their "very special weather marker".

Everybody have a seat, have a seat, have a seat,
Everybody come and have a seat on the floor.
Not on the ceiling, not on the door,
Everybody come and have a seat on the floor.

By the time we were done singing, children were in a circle on the floor. I would have moved to the floor with them. We...

My 4th graders come in and complete their "morning routine:"
move lunch clip, unpack, sharpen 2 pencils, fill out & turn in "attitude check" (a quarter sheet of paper I created that lets me know how my students are feeling 1st thing and if they have anything going on at home or school), and copy assignments from assignment board into their notebooks. (This takes all of 5-10 min.)

Then students find a seat on the floor to get ready for our morning meeting. Our school announcements start (morning routine should be finished by this time & students should be seated on the floor to listen to announcements over the p.a. system).

Morning meeting: (15 min.)
We always start w/ a greeting (simple handshake, pinkie shake, knuckle tap, high five, etc.) and pass it around the circle.

My morning meeting often varies, we always read a story, sing the days of the week song, I hand out cards with the days of the week on them and they hold them up as we sing that day, then we talk about what day it is today, and ask which child has that day, and how we know (Sarah has Monday because I know it starts with M and her card starts with M. Then we do the calendar talk about the date, anything special that happens and the weather. We have a Morning Message, that I write (most people use a new one every day, I use the same one all week and we do different things with it each day), we read it, I have a child point to the words. then we cirlce letters, blends, vowels, sight words, fill in missing words...

Morning meeting (separate from a calendar time) is the most positive and rewarding thing you can do with your class. Everyone gets a friendly greeting,sharing is purposeful, as opposed to 'show and tell',you can incorporate LA or math skills and have time for a fun activity like a game or a song. It reinforces (or teaches) social skills too. All in 20 -30 minutes of your time.Check out the website. This is not a program but rather an approach or a philosophy. Community building,personal and group responsibility and respect are the basic tenets. I have taken several trainings,especially when I know I have a 'tough group' coming in. I can't tell you how positive an impact using some of thier ideas can have. Morning meeting is something very important in my second grade classroom. I have seen calendar time used to start a math lesson,like...

At my school we do the following:

1. Greeting - a fun activity that allows students to greet one another. A way to start the day off on a good note.
2. Share Time - 2 -3 students share with the rest of the class and they are allowed to choose 1-3 students to ask questions or make comments about was shared. I also use this time to talk about how to be a good friend, a good listener, a good writer and a good reader. I will also take this time to discuss problems that have occurred in the classroom.
3. Activity - Some kind of a movement activity or game. A chance for the kids to get their wiggles out. We dramatize poems, stories or songs.

Morning Meeting
Posted by:jane #118910

You start the day with a message written to your class. The idea is to give them a heads-up about what's on the agenda for that day and you try to build the class's enthusiasm and motivation. Finishing the morning message is an interactive question where each child makes a response. (can be a survey type question and should be related to your curriculum and current lessons. Example: What do you think was the most difficult challenge for pioneers? Leaving their home...weather, threat of Native Americans, sickness, other) This will be reviewed and discussed at the end of Morning Meeting.

Start with everyone sitting so they can see each other. A meeting circle is great but I have had large classes turn their chairs in a way where we form somewhat of a circle; some might call it a puddle. Begin with everyone greeting each other. Teach social...

Morning Meeting

For 17 years I have started every school day with Morning Meeting for my class of combined 4th - 6th grades. We pass a Speaking Stick (special carved stick) around the circle. The child with the Speaking Stick has the floor - everyone else is a listener, although they can respond to what the speaker has said when the speaker is finished. The stick gets passed aroung until every child has had the opprotunity to share. Children can pass without speaking.

Often the children talk about what they did the evening before, but all kinds of things can come out of Morning Meeting once children are comfortable with it. Topics such as illness in the family, concern over something in the news, a plan to raise money for disaster relief, an idea for a great project, come up out of this forum. Children build a sense of trust and...

There are several excellent books that helped me create a social curriculum especially in the beginning of the year. Go to ResponsiveClassroom.org. It is an excellent site and sign up for their newsletter. Through them I purchased several books, Morning Meeting and The First Six Weeks of School. The meeting itself is broken into several parts and I never have time to do all of them but I did do the greeting, sharing, announcement portion each day. I also closed the day with an ending meeting several times a week. This gave me excellent feedback on how they saw the day.

This speaking and listening to each other carried over to the playground and even in literature circle reading groups, etc. I also teach third grade. I have spoke of this so often in my school that the fourth grade teachers are doing it this year and...

Love Morning Meeting
Posted by:kristeacher #126035

I started having Morning Meeting last December and loved it. The parts of the meeting were : Greeting ( these varied from saying hello in different languages to Morniing dances, to Poems) Morning Message, Sharing TIme and a Community Building Game or song. The games were the kid's favorite. We played everykind of game from SPARKLE, hand games, to Doggy Doggy. We also sang every Monday and Friday. I introduced songs from musicals to oldies. Morning Meetings lasted about 15-20 minutes. They were really a chance for the class to grow and bond together.

There is a website you should look at called the Responisve Classroom.
Good luck with Morning Meeting. I think you will love it.

morning meeting
Posted by:CD #20383

Morning meeting is a great opportunity for classroom "building". Rather than talk about national news, could you talk about the students' personal news. It is a great chance to learn about your students through sharing activities. Morning meeting can also be used as a forum to solve any class problems that come up, using an agenda format. Last year the kids were upset because they weren't allowed off the blacktop when it snowed. We channeled the anger and figured out how to address it in a calm and appropriate manner by listing problem and solution and then writing a letter.The children also solved a problem by making an appointment with the principal and sending "representatives".
I hope I don't sound like I am shooting down your original idea, incorporate the news and current event in too but it might be nice to sometimes have students lead through games...

Morning Meeting- kindergarten
Posted by:aliryan #122073

This is how ours goes:

1. Come in and hand in our lunch orders, notes and home reading folders.
2. Sit in the floor in front of our whiteboard.
3. Say good morning and mark the role.
4. Go through our classroom rules- they are above the board as visuals.
5. Read our social stories eg. "When someone bothers me", "Doing the right thing", "Touching others".
6. Go through our schedule using the visual timetable.
7. Have news.
8. Secret sentence- modelled writing using our sight words for the week.
9. Calendar

Then we move into phonics groups. I work in a team teaching kindergarten class. We do our morning meetings as seperate classes and then move into same ability groups for phonics.

morning meetings...
Posted by:JulieG04 #118909

Our district looks on the morning meeting as a time to greet everyone, teach and practice giving compliments and positive feedback, and as the year goes on, the teacher relinquishes some of the organizational control to the students (i.e. notes are recorded by a designated student and reviewed at the next meeting to make sure all old issues are addressed). Everyone is actively involved in a morning meeting, even if it's only to greet someone else; part of the theory is that it's especially beneficial for students who might go the whole day and not really be addressed as an individual. I don't have the book here at home, but it gives lots of examples and anyone can modify it to fit their own needs/goals. BTW we don't do morning meetings every day, but we do them as often as is feasible.

morning meeting vs. calendar time
Posted by:jane #46420

If you can manage it, it's probably better to start the day with a meeting that's more focused on interpersonal, oral communication and listening skills (answering a question of the day, shared reading of a poem or song). you can do admin stuff then, too, like attendance. it sets up the day on a good, friendly, positive shared note. and it also flows nicely into a literacy block.

Then you can save calendar for a lead in to your math block. the way i've seen it, it makes for an excellent post-recess wind-down. here you do things like reciting the date, counting the days of the school year (by 2s, 5s, 10s, whatever you're studying), counting the date with popsicle sticks to practice place value, reporting the weather and graphing the results, playing an estimation game or mental math.

Posted by:Anne #38343

The fifteen-twenty minutes I spend each day with my class in the morning is the most wonderful part of the day and it does give me a lot of insight into their lives. We do go over the calander/weather, DOL and DOM, but the best part is Hopper a stuffed frog. Hopper hops each day from child to child. The rule is only the person holding Hopper can speak. I start the topic of discussion...it can be anything from a favorite color, food, sport,etc., to tell about a time that you were frightened.

It only takes Hopper five minutes or so to go around the class since only the child with Hopper can speak and the children do not comment on what others say. (This rule also helps the children feel safe to say what they want with out the fear of being ridiculed by others.) When a child...

I liked how you incorporated the smartboard and was curious if anyone else had any ways they had used morning message, but more specifically for third grade. This is something that was very powerful and really helped develop a community feeling in my classroom. I would recommend Morning Meeting to all.

The first year I used morning meeting was 2001. I had 5th graders that year, and for the first 3 weeks the meeting was used as a getting to know you type meeting. We had a squishy eyeball that we used as the "talking stick". You had to be holding the eyeball to speak. The eyeball was passed in a circle as the topic of the day was shared. Three weeks into the school year the morning of 9/11 unfolded. Thank heavens I had started the morning meeting, because it had already created a sense of family and safety in the classroom. Because of the morning meeting, my kids felt safe to share their feelings and lean on others for support. Because of the success of the meetings in that year, I continued to have them.

Hi there...boy, what you are going through sounds a lot like what I had last year. Because of scheduling, I only had one day a week where we could have a class meeting. I called it our Friday Forum. We had an agenda each week, where students could suggest meeting items. A topic had to be submitted before the meeting to be discussed at that week's meeting. I had a jar in the back of the room where students could write items for the meeting without having everyone know that it was their idea or problem to discuss. Usually, Friday morning, I would put all the meeting agenda items on a large chart paper, and if anyone wanted to add anything during the day on Friday, they could write it on the chart paper.

I acted as the mediator during the meeting, but the students actually ran the meeting....

In my first grade classroom, I use morning meeting in an educational way. We all sit on the rug and begin with the Calendar. Students have to state the day of the week, the month and the date. On to weather. We keep track of the daily weather. I use a 100 chart for how many days we have been in school. I also do D.O.L. (Daily Oral Language). I write an incorrect sentence on the board...for example...the boy likes to ride his bike.....I call on students to tell me that the "T" on the needs to be uppercase and they have to tell me the reason...beginning of a sentence...then they get to come up and correct it. We also use morning meeting to go over the words of the week. I find this very effective in my classroom.

I teach 4th grade and yes, I do fit in a morning meeting everyday. However, many days they only last 10-15 minutes. We always do a greeting, go over the schedule of the day, and have 3-4 students briefly share. Sometimes they last a little longer if I have an issue to deal with, etc.

I'm not sure I could give up much more time for a morning meeting, but it is a great way to start the day and definitely helps to build community.

Then they picked up the morning paper which we called the daily bite. In second grade the daily bite was like a daily language edit and a math section.

My Morning Meeting is right after the bell rings to start our day. We meet at the carpet. We do morning greetings, discuss our day's schedule and any other "news" of the day, and since it's at the beginning of our reading/literature block, I usually do a mini lesson on the strategy we're working on. Sometimes, we do wordwall work or discuss our weekly vocab, too.

On good days, it only takes about 15 minutes. Sometimes, though, it's longer, especially if I use a picture book for our mini lesson.

I think it's a great way to focus and begin our day.

Allowing my kids to talk during this time is the best thing I've done! They get it all out (for me, it's only about a 10 minute time), and as soon as the late bell rings, they are assembled in circle, ready for the morning meeting.

Even though I allow chatting, the noise in my classroom is almost always related to reading. They are talking about books or reading aloud. As adults, we don't want to walk straight to...

Love Morning Meeting!
Posted by:Trinitylynne #125495

Hi! I have used MM for about 6 years now. I use the first 15 minutes of the day. Greeting, then sharing(no more than 3 people with three questions for each), then, if time permits, an activity that coincides with spelling for the week or math facts or ss or science review. Since I'm now in a private Christian school(last two years), I also have devotions and a prayer for the day between greeting and sharing. On some days when the early morning is otherwise scheduled, we meet briefly after lunch, but I prefer starting out the day with the greeting and time together. It really creates a family feeling. The sharing time also promotes listening and questioning skills.

My methods stem from this approach, I think it's wonderful - and so positive.

Morning meetings encourage such a cooperative classroom, that I wouldn't teach without them. (I've been using MM for the past 4 years, and I started using them when I taught 6th grade. -- They certainly benefited from our meetings, possibly more than my 4th graders!)

I would suggest trying to hold your MM's first thing in the morning (if you wait too late in the day, conflicts have often already evolved amongst some of the students or w/in their other classes). Also, don't overwhelm yourself by trying to have one everyday. I would aim for two to three times per week, especially at first. Allow at least 30 minutes, probably more, for your VERY FIRST meeting to discuss procedures and expectations (how to come to the floor for the meeting or any necessary re-arrangements of desks, must come & be seated quietly, etc.). Then after that, your meetings can be...

Hi Mandy,
I started morning meetings this year and I love them! The kids do, too. Whenever we have a schedule change, they are very disappointed when meeting is shortened or canceled altogether.
I got "The Morning Meeting Book" this summer, and it was full of great ideas. I take about 10-15 minutes max each morning first thing. We do pledges in the meeting circle.
What I have seen affect the class most is the morning greeting. We went over greeting rules alot, especially making eye contact. If these kids have to actually address each other respectfully and interested, they actually become interested in the person and what they have to say.
Also, make sure that you seat them where you want them initially. I didn't do this at first, so it really defeated the outcome. They still...
