What’s a Morning Meeting & Why it’s Needed in Your Classroom Routine

I am so excited you are here! Before we dive in, did you know you can snag ALL of August’s Morning Meeting slides FOR FREE?!? Keep reading for more details. 🤩

What’s a Morning Meeting?

According to Responsive Classroom, a Morning Meeting is “an engaging way to start each day, build a strong sense of community, and set children up for success socially and academically.”

Typically a Morning Meeting happens at the beginning of class and utilizes the first 15-30 minutes…depending on what your schedule allows.


Why a Morning Meeting is Needed in Your Classroom

Intentional mornings set the tone for intentional learning.

Starting your day with a consistent routine that allows students to connect, collaborate, reflect, review, or engage leads to a more conducive learning environment.  Establishing a Morning Meeting into your routine can:

  • establish a stronger sense of community
  • increase social/emotional awareness
  • promote structure
  • establish expectations
  • facilitate growth

A Morning Meeting that Does it All

Since I began teaching I had always wanted a slide that I would show at the beginning of each class. Fast-forward to now and I finally took the time to make that daydream a reality! I LOVE how these turned out.

These Morning Meetings are 100% paperless. Students will know and understand what the daily expectations are and will consequently be able to self-start. This also gives you flex time for students to arrive and engage before jumping into the curriculum you don’t want them to miss. Also, because these slides are so fun and many of the challenges allow for interaction and connection, students are also internally incentivized to be there, be on time, and be ready!

Each day students will complete or respond to a digital daily attendance check-in, record and possibly reflect on their current emotion, and complete the daily task, challenge, or activity.

If you are looking for a consistent way to start each morning or each class, while connecting with your students, increasing organization, and building SEL…KEEP reading!

This product was created with the upper grades in mind. I  feel confident recommending them for  4th-12th-grade classrooms.
