Building classroom community in less than ten minutes a day.
Use the morning meeting responses daily to connect with your students.
Getting to know your students on a personal level (family, friends, interests, likes, dislikes, etc.) and letting their voice be heard are important.
Staying connected with your students does not need to take much time or effort.
This pack does it all for you. These can work for morning meetings or exit tickets. Students thrive on consistency, they look forward to “Taco ‘Bout” it Tuesday every week where they can talk about anything they’d like. They jot it on the corresponding note and turn it in to me. I read them during morning meeting or throughout the day and respond accordingly. Sometimes that’s whole group, privately or as simple as an acknowledgement.
