Should I buy projectable Morning Meetings?

I was told I'm being moved to 3rd last week, and school starts in 3 days. I'm very interested in starting Morning Meetings, but since we are also starting AVID this year, I am concerned I won't have time to plan and prep Morning Meetings along with AVID.

For those of you who use them, what do you think? I'm thinking of buying these projectable slides from TPT.

I notice you can download a week's worth for free. You could do that, try it out, and then decide whether it works for you.

Morning meeting

I always felt the reason for morning meeting was for everyone to just check in with the group. I took all my routines from an old book/program called Tribes.

We sat in a circle, each person said “good morning, my name is X” and then either answered a simple question, or said “I pass”. Most days the questions were super simple:
How was your weekend?
What are you going to be for Halloween?
What’s your favorite food or color or song or movie, etc.
What are you doing after school?
Tell a quick funny story?
How many people are in your family.

As we got comfortable with each other, more and more kids would participate, less would say “I pass”, and the topics could be more about their emotional quotient. “How are you feeling this morning?” can be quite an eye opener.

Hope this helps.

Save your money and do not buy these. I bought this and do not use it. I found it difficult to edit, partially because I am not computer techi, and there was too much to do and I didn’t have time for everything. I started just making my own morning message previewing our day and then we would do a greeting, discuss things, and share. I used things that were important and pertained to our class.

I am going to totally second what Keltikmom said. The book Tribes really transformed my classroom. It is absolutely crazy how kids become comfortable. I HIGHLY recommend this book!

Sorry to thank you all so late. We started school two weeks ago, and I was exhausted! Thanks for taking the time to advise. I ended up finding a planning templete and have done my own plans and the class is LOVING morning meeting!
