I strongly want to use morning meeting this school year. I want to cover the following things
~daily objectives
~daily news
~time to share about anything exciting

AND I also want to do some sort of team building exercise to set the tone of the day! What are some team building activities do you do with your kiddos AND/OR what do you do during your Morning Meeting???

We do a Responsive Classroom Morning Meeting. There are four components, they are:

Greeting (children quickly greet each other): I use many types of greetings to make it interesting and fun.

Sharing (children share "important news"): I have a schedule and they take turns sharing and answering questions and making comments

Activity (children participate in a community building or academic community building activity): We do lots of different activities that build our community and enhance our academics. We do lots of games, songs, poetry presentations, etc.

Message (I write a message to the kids every day that has a place for them to respond to and bridges our meeting into academics):

Dear Fantastic First Graders,

Today is Monday, April 2, 2010. Sonya is the line leader and the helper today.

We will read a book called Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Think about a terrible day you've had and what happened. Put your name on the chart if you would like to share. We're going to make connections with Alexander today!

Sincerely,
Miss R


Morning Meeting starts our day in a positive way and it really meets the kids' needs of belonging, signficance and fun. I saw a big positive difference in the way my kids interacted with each other and my behavior problems went down after implementing Morning Meeting. A great book is The Morning Meeting Book by Roxanne Kriete. Good luck!

Greetings

Special event announcements (kids can announce something they did or are going to do)

This day in history (One kid per day, every day)

Goals for the day (What I want to see done/worked on, learned)

Schedule items (What and when..computer lab? Library? Assembly? etc)

Changes This is where I let the kids suggest changes to the schedule. I always ask why and if they have a good reason and I don't have a good reason for not changing the time I do it. I'll let kids suggest more/less time on a certain activity depending on how much time they need as well.

6th grade-self contained.

I used to do bell work (Daily Oral Language or Math ) before this but am thinking that SSR will be the bell work...Book Whisperer style.

Do you have the Morning Meeting book? It's full of great ideas. It has pages of team building activities in the back organized by different criteria. I highly recommend it.

body language and eye contact

An essential ingredient with Responsive classrooms is each student giving eye contact and proper body language.

Some of the cool chants- (in the book) are kid friendly and quick!

Stepping away from rewards/stickers is extremely important.
