Casey Harris - Morning Meeting

My morning meetings are a time for the students in my homeroom to start their morning with the right energy. Over the course of our morning meeting, students:

  • Greet each other
  • Share something
  • Complete an activity

Classroom greeting in "Turtle Mode"

Students have ownership and are allowed to come up with certain parts of the meeting, but the structure always remains the same.

An effective morning meeting allows my students to learn new things about their classmates and teachers, while creating a place that is safe and welcoming.
