First Days
What does Morning Meeting look like the first day or two of school? A full meeting? Is there a good greeting or activity to start with?

The first morning all I did was the greeting and the message. For the greeting we just practiced a basic greeting saying " good morning" around the circle- talking about what made a good greeting. After a couple days I introduced the handshake greeting to build off of that. I think the second day we did "the big wind blows" and the next day we played the game "21" for the activity part of the meeting.

We did a full meeting our first day - an intro to everything. I did the greeting "Hickety Pickety Bumble Bee" with a bee puppet to pass around. The kids said good morning to each other. Share: I asked the question "what's your favorite color?" and children took turns answering. Group Activity: Then we did the song, “Way up High” and the children stood up to learn the actions. I showed the kids the News & Announcements and I pointed out the parts and then read the message. The children went around the circle and said their name and I wrote it on the chart. Then we counted the names to make sure it matched the number of people in our class. It only took about 15 minutes and the kids had a lot of fun!
