PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

At the beginning of the day I gather my students in a circle on the carpet for our opening circle.

An opening circle (sometimes called a morning meeting) is a great way for students and teachers to reflect on the day ahead, build community, and practice listening & speaking skills. Opening circles help build a positive classroom environment where students feel free to share what’s on their hearts and minds.

This product contains 48 opening circle questions to promote reflection, sharing, and discussion. These questions can be used for all grade levels! Four blank cards are included so you can write your own questions. This product aligns with the Common Core Speaking and Listening Standard for multiple grade levels, as well as the Responsive Classroom model.

There is no right or wrong way to use these cards. Start by cutting them apart and laminating them for durability. Place them in a box or jar. Here are some possible uses:

1. Have a student draw one card and allow each student in the circle to share their answer.

2. Have each student draw a different card and share their answer with the group.
