No more writing morning letters to your students, it's all done for you! These daily questions are great for “bell ringers,” morning work, morning greeting, morning meeting, group discussions, shares, language modeling, or writing prompts. Plus, there's a fun Boom Learning Digital October trivia activity included! ($3.25 value!)

Why use October 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 they enter the classroom in the morning, these October 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 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 October. One page can be projected in the classroom 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. 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 full 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 on these questions should arise.

What’s included: There are 31 questions in all, based on fun holidays in the month of October. There are 31 for display and 31 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 meeting or calendar time. This resource also has a blank picture page and a blank written page for the children with the same formatting for you to use as you please. It also has examples, information, and suggestions for use.

These daily questions go along with:
