Cntryheart, I love the activity file you saved! Thanks for that.

In only three days with this class (I'm starting midyear in a year round school) I already see a difference that holding the morning meeting is having within the class. It truly is amazing! On the second day, I did handshake with addressing each other by surnames... nobody (these kids have gone to school together for years in a three room schoolhouse) knew their peers surnames. They were shocked to discover how little they knew about each other after only two meetings, and yesterday they begged to greet by surnames again after our scheduled greeting-- just for "practise"! The greeting went by so fast! They had obviously gone round at recess to learn each other's names.

Glad to have some more ideas until my MM books of activities arrive. I especially like the bean bag one, as I have a lot of kinesthetic learners in the class!

Again, thank you.
