I used morning meeting from Responsive classroom for the last three years before I retired. We had several inservices with responsive classroom trainers. I taught first grade and one book I found very helpful was 80 Morning Meeting Ideas for K-2. I think it is about $20 on Amazon. My school had a copy. I really enjoyed it. It was a great way to start the day. I added review things to my morning message. For example I might say “ yesterday we practiced addition strategies. What strategies would you use to solve these equations 48+4, 65+7? Or “yesterday we read a non- fiction book about dolphins. Can you tell me a fact you learned?
It is important to model and practice greeting each other. Practice one greeting like a handshake several days before you try a different greeting. Make sure they look at the person and greet them by name. The book has ideas for different greetings, also. Make sure you practice expectations especially if you are rolling a ball for a greeting.
I think it added a lot to my classroom community.
