What is Morning Meeting? Morning meeting is a wonderful way to build classroom community and teach a variety of skills be it academic, emotional or social. It helps set the tone for the day and creates a routine in which children feel safe and comfortable. Morning meeting is the place where children and the teacher can share news about what's going on at home, school or in the world. It's a place to feel safe, loved, and important.
Students participate in a variety of activities to help them feel part of the class. Each student is valued. Everyone gets to share and fee welcomed into their classroom and school community.
