Morning Meetings in Lower School are a Positive Way to Start the Day

Morning meetings are a time when students and teachers gather together, usually in a circle, for an organized start-of-day activity. They can be as quick as 15 minutes or as long as 30. It is to be determined based on what students need to start their day as lifelong learners. They learn faster when you're listening to them, and come to believe they are worthy. In turn, the children begin to believe in themselves.  The purpose of a morning meeting is to transition students between home and school, practice cooperation and social skills. It's an informal way to reacquaint everyone with each other and with the classroom. Children come together in a relaxed environment to do something everyone enjoys. The teacher starts by welcoming students, reviewing the day's activities, discussing changes in the classroom, meeting new students, celebrating the accomplishments of classmates, and anything else that benefits from a whole-group meeting.  Morning meeting is a positive approach to building a classroom community and it sets the tone for the day. It is a treasured part of the day for our 2nd-grade students.
