NEW BONUS: Social Distancing Greetings poster with non-contact options.

Start your back to school activities with the right foot, invite the children to point at a visual greeting chart with morning greeting choices to receive a warm welcome from you (the teacher) or from a designated morning greeter (child). You know they love these types of classroom jobs!

► How to use the Morning Greetings Choices for Distance Learning and Social Distancing:

As one of your distance learning activities introduce a fun daily morning routine by empowering your children with a poster of greeting choices at the start of your Zoom class as virtual way to enter the classroom.

At the start of your live virtual meeting (with Zoom any platform that you are using), show the poster on screen so the students can choose how to greet you as they join in.

Do each greeting to the camera and ask the student to do the same. Here are the no-touch greeting choices that are included in the poster:

  • Jazz Hands
  • Foot Bump
  • Namaste
  • Smile
  • Wave
  • New Way (anything distance-friendly that the children come up with)

If you need more ideas of social distancing greetings for kids, please check our blog about it. There you have more than a dozen different contactless greetings options to choose from.
