Whiteboard Messages or Morning Meeting Ideas
For all of you Instagram loving friends like myself, I am sure you have seen the cute, creative whiteboard messages all throughout your feeds. Perhaps you have used whiteboard messages in your classroom already! Seeing these all throughout my feed has made me realize just how effective having whiteboard messages on a regular basis could be for my students. Talk about building classroom community! Not only can I build community, but at the same time, encourage critical thinking and give a little extra moment during the day to those students who always have something they want to tell me.
I am not always the best at thinking on the spot, and with the craziness of the school year, I knew I would have trouble coming up with cutesy whiteboard messages on a regular basis...hence, this product!
I have not only included questions for students to think about, but also quotes from famous people that students can reflect upon and that relate to each day's theme. Students can write directly on the whiteboard, write on a post-it note and stick it to the board, or have a journal that they jot their ideas into. There are enough messages for 48 weeks of topics and 4 questions or quotes per topic, totaling about 960 message ideas! Use once a day, once a week, once a month...whatever works for YOUR classroom!
