No more writing morning letters to your students, it's all done for you!

Why use May Morning Meeting Greeting Activities? Research tells us people (including students) need both routine and novelty. This resource provides both: the routine of answering daily questions, and the novelty of fun holidays with interesting questions to be answered each day. Since teachers spend time daily planning what the children will do when the children enter the classroom in the morning, these May Morning Meeting Greeting Activities will certainly make their lives easier! For more about routine and novelty see this blog post: Predictability and Novelty

How it works: Every morning, the teacher can display or print out the daily information and question for the children to answer. These can be answered orally or in writing. There are two pages for every day in the month of January. One page can be projected for the children to see as they arrive in the morning. The second page has the same question and information, with lines for the children to respond in writing. These questions can be used daily or just once in a while. Each day does not depend on any previous questions. Each day has the date, a special holiday connected to that date, some information about that holiday, and a “thinking question” to go with that date. As the year progresses, the expectations for the responses should rise. (Modeling!) The display pages are perfect for use as a background for virtual or in-class learning. The teacher can choose whether to have everyone share their answer, have some students share, have all students share with partners or a small group. or have students pass in a written answer,

Suggestion: After collecting written responses, the teacher can choose a few to read (at another time) that model a writing skill you've been working on! Knowing their work might be chosen to model a specific skill is very motivating for students to use that skill!

What’s included: There are 31 questions in all, based on fun holidays in the month of May. The questions come in two forms, one is designed for display and one is designed for printing. The printed copies can be used as weekly booklets, class books, or writing prompts. The display questions can be used for a morning greeting or discussion questions during morning meeting. Many teachers use these written questions as “bell ringers,” or morning work for the children. When the day officially begins, these can be shared during morning meetings or calendar time. This resource also has a blank picture page and a blank writing page for the children with the same formatting for you to use as you please. It also has examples, information, and suggestions for use.

It also includes a link for sending daily writing prompts home for virtual learning.

BOOM Cards are easy for the teacher and fun for the children! These can be played on computers or tablets, give immediate feedback to the children, and detailed data for the teacher.
