I LOVE these new ideas! So many really support their academic and social growth in combination. Thank you for giving me new ideas for sharing!

My share is pretty straight forward--lightening share on Mondays (around the circle share) and regular sharing the other days. Students are allowed three questions. Once last year, I had students buddied and they had to share something about their buddy that they had learned that was different from something that student had already shared with the group. Their goal was to find a connection they had among them to share about. The kid being shared about got three questions. I was really impressed by their results.

I try to do a quick closing circle once or twice a week (at least on Friday) and we always do an around the circle with a reflection on behavior or academics (how did you take care of yourself, what's something that helped you learn, what have you learned about rocks, etc.).
