I'm glad I'm not the only one who despises morning meeting! I used to enjoy it, but I work in a new district where they are very strict about how the meeting is supposed to be run. It feels very stiff to me and I get impatient. Sometimes it can take half an hour, which I think is way too long!

We are required to play a daily game with the kids (in addition to a greeting and a share). I teach 4th too and very quickly run out of ideas. The kids have been doing the same games for 4 years and they're over it too.

I agree with the suggestions you've gotten so far. I sometimes let them make up their own games (they will plan the game a day or so ahead). They love that. We also go outside whenever the weather is nice, so I may just let them run for 10 minutes. We also switch it up and have other teachers in the building (our coaches, resource teachers, aides, etc.) who come in and take a turn leading the meeting, and that helps!
